Don’t X Out Public Transportation

On Tuesday, September 20th public transit riders, advocates, and employees are joining for a nation-wide event, Don’t X Out Public Transportation.  Rallies are planned for over two dozen cities around the country to call on Congress to support investments public transportation; and also to oppose a proposal from the U.S. House of Representatives that would cut transit funding by more than one third.

Such a drastic cut would likely result in major service cuts and fare increases that would leave millions of Americans, particularly low-income people and communities of color, stranded without transportation options:

    • Nearly 60 percent of households without vehicles have incomes below 80 percent of their region’s median income.
  • Over 27 percent of Latino and 25 percent of African American households in metropolitan areas have no access a vehicle.

Preserving and enhancing our public transportation system is a critical investment for a more inclusive nation.  Visit the Don’t X Out Public Transportation website to get information about joining a rally in your community.  Also, stayed tuned to EquityBlog for additional updates on how you can get engaged in building a more equitable transportation system in America.
