DASH is joining fellow American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and Virginia Transit Association (VTA) members as well as industry partners on Tuesday, December 15 to collectively fight to #SavePublicTransit with a day of mobilization and engagement.

Organized by APTA, #SavePublicTransit Day will shine the light on the dire financial crisis facing the public transportation industry and urge elected officials to take immediate action.

It is critical that Congress move forward and provide emergency funding for public transit in the lame duck session before Congress recesses for the holiday. The industry is calling on Congress and the Administration to provide at least $32 billion in emergency funding to ensure that public transit agencies can survive and help our communities and nation recover from the economic fallout of the pandemic.

Immediate action needs to be taken to address the public transportation industry’s dire financial situation as we serve Americans every day. The public transportation industry’s very survival is at stake.
