Our Mission

Educate decision makers and support policies and funding to improve public transit in California.

We work to connect everyday Californians with their legislators and other transit supporters to educate Californians on the benefits of public transportation. Using a simple, cutting-edge communications tool, we make it easy for our partners to email, tweet and Facebook their legislative representatives.

Our Priorities

  • Identify alternative and increased transit funding sources and new ways to incentivize transit use
  • Call attention to the role transit plays in meeting California’s environmental goals and enhancing local communities
  • Monitor legislation, regulations and budget & policy developments that impact public transit
  • Establish and improve relationships with key state legislators, staff and other government officials on behalf of public transit riders
  • Educate state legislators, staff and other government officials about public transit, with an emphasis on how funding works and transit’s funding needs
  • Position public transit as a bi-partisan policy priority that deserves increased state support
  • Increase opportunities for transit to influence local planning efforts through the state legislative and regulatory process
  • Provide our supporters and partners with the tools they need to help us carry our message to their state representatives
