Over the last month, Americans for Transit staff and volunteers from the transit union have canvased thousands of riders across the region. Hundreds of riders have attended our four town halls to express their opposition to the proposed WMATA service cuts and fare increases.
We have met people who are afraid that if the service cuts go through, they will lose their jobs, lose access to necessary health care and have difficulty reaching their loved ones and communities.
People have told us that they want more transit.
Yet, the WMATA Board may still vote to cut service and raise fares. Meanwhile politicians in Maryland and Virginia do nothing to stop this crisis.
They need to from hear you.
Join us at the WMATA Board Headquarters to tell these leaders how you will be harmed by the proposed changes. #WMATA #StopTheCuts
