Don’t X Out Public Transportation Day is the combined effort of Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), Los Angeles Bus Riders Union, National Association of Public Transportation Advocates in Action (NAPTA), Reconnecting America, Transit Riders for Public Transportation, Transportation for America (T4), the Transportation Equity Network, Transport Workers Union (TWU), Urban Habita, and transit systems and advocates across the country.
This national rally day and call to action highlights the severe effects a cut of more than one third in federal transit funding would have and the need for increased investment in public transportation.
Please use the items in the tool kit to help in promoting Don't X Out Public Transportation Day in your community.
