Communities Across the Nation Unite to Emphasize Need for Long-term Investment in U.S. Transportation Infrastructure before Expiration of Federal Transportation Bill on May 31.
With the future of America’s public transportation, roads, bridges and rail systems on the line, transportation and community leaders from across the country will unite on April 9, 2015 to highlight “Stand Up for Transportation Day.” Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), with support from national and local partners from transportation organizations, business and community oriented interests, Stand Up for Transportation Day will unite the voices of 216 participating organizations in more than 140 communities across the country to focus on the urgency of the passage of a long-term, federal transportation bill.
The current federal transportation funding bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), is set to expire on May 31, 2015. Without a long-term federal transportation funding bill, communities across the country will face tremendous uncertainty. Transportation is the backbone of our local and national economy. A long-term transportation bill is needed for better and expanded transportation options, and to continue to grow our economy.
