Winning Transit

Transit agencies in the U.S have historically been deprived of the revenue they need to run frequent, reliable service. As a result, buses often run once an hour, trains are perpetually delayed, and bus shelters are few and far between. Fortunately, civic groups across the country are organizing transit riders and winning improvements like bus lanes, funding to increase service, and fare discounts for riders with low incomes. These victories are making a difference in transit riders’ lives right now and advancing the long-term goal of achieving broad-based access to fast, frequent, reliable, affordable transit. “Winning Transit” pulls together the experience of these advocates into a guide for running successful transit campaigns. We hope it will be a valuable resource for anyone involved in transit advocacy, whether they’re just starting out or already have some wins under their belt.
