Ridership Canvass with the People's Transit Alliance
September 24, 2021
Come join the People's Transit Alliance to build ridership power for a public transportation system that works for the working class of the East Bay!
We are canvassing riders in Downtown Oakland to petition for a Riders' Budget. As riders and workers, we demand that:
AC Transit must spend the first $66 million of federal rescue funds now to hire and train transit workers, restore service (including paratransit), reduce fares, and provide hazard pay to the frontline transit workers who kept AC Transit moving throughout the pandemic.
AC Transit must make a plan for the next $44 million now, in public meetings that give transit workers and riders a democratic say in how and when those tens of millions of dollars are spent.
If you've never canvassed before, that's ok! We will have an optional prep Zoom call on Th 9/23 at 5 pm (for those who can't make it, we'll also do a mini-training on Fri. morning). The canvass itself is 9:30-11:30 am on September 24 in Downtown Oakland at 14th and Broadway.
