NY- Advocating for Better Transit in Albany

A transit coalition has been building across New York to urge New York lawmakers to fund public transportation. On Tuesday, February 12th, 2019, Our Streets Transit Coalition, a transportation coalition in Rochester and allies from Rochester headed to Albany for a lobby day. Mary Lupien, Mothers Out Front leader joined the team.

Reconnect Rochester supported the effort on their Facebook page by posting:

"GO TEAM TRANSIT!Our fearless coalition group braved the weather to travel to #Albany today. We're meeting with lawmakers to urge them to support a transformational investment in public transportation (50% increase over 5 years) and other legislation that will create more just, equitable & sustainable transportation systems in upstate NY.

You can support our efforts from the comfort of your own home by signing the petition and sending letters to lawmakers: just click here!
