This week, we joined more than 100 transit and environmental groups in sending a letter to the Chair and Ranking Member of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees demanding that they keep the promise of the bipartisan infrastructure bill and fully fund transit throughout the Fiscal Year 2025 appropriations process.

The letter, which was organized by the National Campaign for Transit Justice, and signed by NRDC, Sierra Club, Union of Concerned Scientists, Transportation for America, National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) and many others, asks Congress to fund:

  • Transit
  • RAISE and MEGA Competitive Grant Programs
  • Healthy Streets Program
  • Reconnecting Communities
  • Thriving Communities
  • Active Transportation Infrastructure Investment Program (ATIIP)
