Public transit is essential infrastructure and is especially crucial for the millions of Americans who depend on it to get to work and access services. As the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, affordable, reliable, and accessible transit is even more vital.
Yet some Senators are talking about cutting federal funding for transit services — which would increase congestion while leaving communities cut off from economic opportunities and households struggling with high transportation costs. It’s critical that the federal government invest in a transit system that is safe and reliable.
Join us in calling on key U.S. Senators to demand adequate funding to keep transit running!
My name is [YOUR NAME], and I live in [CITY & ZIP CODE]. I’m calling to urge [YOUR SENATOR] to support $20 billion for operating assistance and transit service to ensure that public transit continues to be affordable and reliable for all of us.

Federal funding has historically prioritized roads, highways, and other capital projects rather than core transit services. Continuing on this path would increase congestion and pollution and cut off economic opportunities, especially for lower-income families. The fastest way to deliver better, more accessible transit networks, improve the experience of current riders, and increase ridership overall is to increase funding for transit services. These investments in transit will speed up economic recovery and make it easier for businesses to hire workers and for families to access jobs and services.
Please include $20 billion for operating assistance and transit service in the upcoming transportation bill. Thank you!
