November Digest: VOICES for PUBLIC TRANSIT






 

Happy Thanksgiving from Voices for Public Transit


First, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has joined our movement to win better public transportation for America. In the months ahead, our community will be working hard to motivate our new Congress to make a long-term commitment to public transportation. If we succeed, we'll have even more to be thankful for!

As part of our Thanksgiving celebration, we just published a new blog, "Top 10 Reasons We're Thankful for Public Transportation." We encourage you to read it and share why you're thankful for public transportation on the Voices for Public Transit website or by commenting on the Public Transportation Facebook page.
