Ensure America's bus transit systems are adequately funded by the Federal Government to provide
the American people (our riders) safe and reliable public bus transportation.
The Federal Transit Administration plays an integral part in public bus transportation system. The video below describes their role and why it is extremely important to invest in public bus transportation.
In order to have a strong infrastructure, members of congress need to take a stance and stand up for supporting the much needed investment. Congressman Panetta is just one of the many backing an investment in bus transit.
285 Bus Transit Related Entities Voice Support in Letter to President Trump
With the new Trump Administration in place and the constant notion of extensive investment in America's infrastructure, The Bus Coalition and Community Transportation Association of America felt it was imperative to speak up for bus systems nationwide and educate the new administration about the need for more investment in America's Bus transit network. This letter has strong support from 285 TBC and CTAA members spanning into 49 States. Below is a map displaying the support.
On March 12th, 2017, over 65 members of The Bus Coalition met at the American Public Transportation Association's Legislative Conference in Washington, DC. It was at this meeting, 4 years ago, where The Bus Coalition was founded. To this day, the coalition continues to grow with new members and supporters being added all the time!
The big push so far this year was the development of a joint letter (shown on the left) between the Bus Coalition and Community Transportation Association of America directed to President Trump. Over 285 transit systems in 49 states signed on to the letter asking for $2.85 billion in bus transit funds when the President develops his infrastructure program.
Also discussed was the future of The Bus Coalition and our work to continue making sure bus transit systems small, medium, and large have adequate funding to serve the American people. All of the members present were excited by the work done so far and future outlook of TBC and agreed to move ahead with our programs.
