A national funding crisis is bearing down on transit riders and the men and women who operate and maintain transportation systems. As the featured report from NBC News makes clear, the economic recession is devastating mass transit systems – at the same time as large numbers of unemployed and under-employed Americans need mobility to find jobs. Keep America Moving is a coalition of transit unions who believe that there must be increased aid to mass transit systems on the part of the federal government. Banks received a $787 billion bailout to continue business as usual – but the economic engine provided by affordable mass transit is no less important to the national economy.

Mass transit is a green, enery-saving alternative which will help reduce climate change as it increases economic opportunities for all Americans. Join us today.
