We are a democratic, grassroots organization of transit riders, workers, and residents who are organizing together to defend and expand public transit.
We believe that public transit is a public good and should be equitable, affordable, and sustainable.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Wednesday, June 3, 2020 In Philly and in cities across the Delaware Valley, we are protesting against a system designed to uphold white supremacy and destroy Black lives. SEPTA should not respond by cancelling buses for essential workers and then instead running them for police. Here’s some what we’ve heard from SEPTA riders and workers who have been left behind as a result of abrupt service cancellations in the last week.
Transit is essential. Pennsylvania needs stable funding for public transit. 82 organizations, unions, and elected officials across the state of Pennsylvania called on state legislators to ensure that the PA Turnpike fulfills its $450 million transit funding obligations until 2023, or until a sustainable, dedicated alternative funding source is secured. This coalition of transit riders, labor unions, community development corporations, and community advocates recognize that the viability of our transit system is paramount to both survive the pandemic and to ensure a path forward to recovery.
