Senators Boxer and Feinstein: Support the Public Transportation Preservation Act Now!
The Senate introduced legislation that would provide emergency funding relief for local transit systems. If this bill is passed, we would see significant relief for public transit agencies here in the Bay Area and statewide.
The Public Transportation Preservation Act of 2010 contains $2 billion in grants for transit agencies across the country for operating trains, buses and ferries by allowing existing capital funds (funds for buying and building new stuff) to be used for operations (actually running stuff).
Write Senators Boxer and Feinstein today and ask them to pass this emergency transit funding bill as soon as possible.
