National Campaign for Transit Justice

The Alliance for a Just Society launched the National Campaign for Transit Justice 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.

We and the broad coalition of over 60 transit rider organizations, national advocates, and transit unions have helped win $69 billion in federal support from Congress to avoid fare hikes, service cuts, and shutdowns.

Now the campaign is working to transform transportation priorities and ensure public transit drives the future of the economy. Our transit work is guided by concern for equity, the climate and our transit justice principles.
