Will you stand up for transportation?

APTA_SUFT Logo_FINAL-01On April 9, communities across the country are coming together to send a powerful message to Congress: We need long-term federal funding in America’s transportation network.

The nation’s transportation infrastructure is rapidly falling into disrepair and, in the long run, short-term and inconsistent funding will slow progress and cost taxpayers more.

Want to show your support for public transportation?

Public transit is an important part of America’s transportation system and it benefits everyone—even those who don’t ride! When you take public transportation you help boost local and national economic growth, ease traffic congestion and reduce air pollution. Plus, it helps get us to all the places we need to go! Want to voice your support for expanding and improving public transit across the nation? Here’s how you can participate:

  • Join us on Thursday, April 9, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Pioneer Courthouse Square and show your support for public transportation. We’re parking a 40’ bus decked out in stickers right in the middle of the square—come on by and take your photo with the bus or in the operator’s seat! There will be crew on site to help take your photos. (Don’t forget to share your photo with the hashtag #SU4T!) We’ll also be handing out some TriMet swag and you can enter our raffle to win a book of 2½-Hour Tickets (a $25 value).
  • Share your support online by using the hashtags #SU4T and #StandUp4Transportation

Congress must take action by May 31. Join us as we stand up for transportation and help bring all of America’s public transportation, roads, bridges, ports and rail systems up to speed!
