Last year, Governor Newsom vetoed the Free Student Transit Pass Program (AB 1919) despite near unanimous support from all members of the legislature and a historic budget surplus. Join us Jan. 10 in Sacramento as K-12 students, parents, community college and university students, transit advocates, and climate justice leaders tell our elected leaders: "Get off your budget and on the bus!"
We believe that as climate change continues to threaten Planet Earth and all who live here we need transit more than ever so that we can walk, bike and ride the bus and train—and ditch gas-guzzling cars—to get wherever we need to go!
We are meeting next Tuesday at 11:45 a.m. on the West Steps of the California State Capitol in Sacramento for a rally and food. Then we will meet with legislators and their staff to encourage them to fund student transit passes.
