April 9, 2015 – Stand Up 4 Transportation – County Connection

April 9, 2015 – Stand Up 4 Transportation

April 9th is Stand Up 4 Transportation Day. County Connection is participating in a regional awareness event at the Temporary Transbay Terminal in San Francisco, and encouraging riders and advocates to attend as well.

The current federal transportation bill is set to expire this year on May 31. It’s important that Congress and the federal government are encouraged to continue to support investment in public transit.

What Can You Do?

  • Join County Connection at the event if you can get away for a few hours. We’ll take a bus to the event that departs from Pleasant Hill BART at 11:00 AM, and leaves San Francisco promptly at 2:30 PM.
  • Watch and share this video about transit in the Bay Area.
  • Learn more about the issues at Stand Up for Transportation.
  • Share with Congress the importance of maintenance and expansion of public transit, roads, and bridges. Stress the need for long-term investment in our aging infrastructure and transportation resources. Write, call, or email your Congressperson, asking him/her to support a strong transportation funding bill.
