It’s critical that we urge the new Congress to make public transportation a major part of any infrastructure legislation.
Please take a moment to send an email to show Congress that transit is a key issue for voters.
Remind your legislators that improved and expanded public transportation will not only keep America moving but will also support job creation and economic growth throughout Detroit and the nation.
TRU is part of the national Voices for Public Transit coalition. You can join too with just your name, zip code, and email. They've set up a simple online tool with a powerful sample “welcome” email to explain to legislators how supporting public transportation is a win-win for our nation.
Together, our flood of emails will build support for including public transit in any infrastructure investment bill that emerges during these first months of the session, as well as longer-term transportation funding discussions.
Please send your email today.
Voices for Transit also has a simple tool to make sure you know who represents you and how to contact them: http://VoicesforPublicTransit.org/LegislatorSearch.aspx. Enter your address and it'll provide your state and federal legislators with their contact information, photos, biographies and more. Phone calls and office visits are even more impactful than emails, and this tool helps make your communications easier.
