The National Campaign for Transit Justice started in response to the emergency faced by public transit systems around the country. The pandemic and the resulting economic crisis pushed public transit around the country to the edge of disaster in 2020.
We mobilize riders, transit workers, small businesses, and transit agencies to #SaveTransit. The campaign is working to save transit from the pandemic crisis and ensure just transit drives the future of the economy.
We helped win $14 billion in federal support from Congress to avoid fare hikes, service cuts, and shutdowns. That was just a downpayment. We need to finish the job to save transit and win transit justice going forward.
The campaign is supported by a broad range of transit groups across the country and is coordinated by Just Strategy.
