Hey MTC! Stop starving our transit! Unlock our transit money NOW!
May 6, 2021
Bay Area transit services are passing up thousands of riders each day and yet the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is holding back $1.67 billion in federal stimulus funds which could be used right now to restore service. They intend to hold back the American Rescue Plan (ARP) instead of using this money for its intended purpose: to restore transit service and the economy and hire more union drivers.
Not only is this a misuse of the stimulus funds, but MTC’s actions will also lead to a self-created crisis in transit as service will not be there as people return to their lives this year, leading to a permanent loss in ridership.
Join us as we demand that MTC release the stimulus funds this year in order to restore transit service NOW!
We will meet at the Transbay Terminal (Mission and Fremont street entrance by the Gondola). Then, we'll march to the MTC Headquarters at 375 Beale Street.
Will you attend? Let us know!
