Join us for Move LA’s first Virtual Transportation Conversation: "Transit is the Future!"

Public transportation systems across the U.S. are in crisis because of the unprecedented pandemic that has dramatically reduced ridership, sales tax and farebox revenue, and funding from the state. Without more aid from Congress, transit service across the U.S. could be gutted, transit workers could be laid off, and essential workers and others could be without a means of getting to work.

For Move LA, this is a matter of Transit Justice. We must not let the pandemic weaken our transit system, reduce service, and reverse all we have worked towards to reduce the inequities and pollution created by our car-centric system. Read the Transit Justice Principles here.

Please join us as we call for Transit Justice at our "Transit is the Future!" Zoomposium on Dec. 8, 1:30-3:00 p.m.

Participe en la conversación virtual sobre el transporte público de Move LA: "El transporte público es el futuro!"

Los sistemas de transporte público de los Estados Unidos están en crisis debido a la pandemia sin precedentes que ha reducido drásticamente la cantidad de pasajeros, lde impuestos e ingresos tarifarios, y la financiación del estado. Sin más ayuda del Congreso, el servicio de transporte público a través de los Estados Unidos podría ser devastado, los trabajadores del transporte público podrían ser despedidos, y los trabajadores esenciales y otras personas podrían quedar sin un medio de transporte para ir al trabajo.

Es un asunto de Justicia en el Transporte Público. No debemos permitir que la pandemia debilite nuestro sistema de transporte, reduzca el servicio y revierta todo lo que hemos trabajado para reducir las desigualdades y la contaminación creadas por nuestro sistema centrado en el automóvil. 

Confirme su participación y únase al llamado por la justicia en el transporte público en "El transporte público es el futuro!" de Move LA Zoomposium el 8 de diciembre, 1:30-3:00 p.m.
