We advocate on behalf of public transit not only because we work for it, but because we believe in it. How it helps decongest cities, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and fosters equity. Investing in public transit means everyone, including low-income workers, seniors, and people living with disabilities, can get where they need to go without owning a car—or contributing to traffic. And the environmental benefits of transit extend beyond climate change. They help fight sprawl and reduce air pollution. We invite you to learn more about our sector and join us in encouraging governments to invest in it so we can keep more people moving safely and conveniently.
