Tell the Senate and House Finance Committee: Protect Our Rail and Transit Funding!

Urge the General Assembly to oppose HB297, HB1144, and SB541 which would suspend the gas tax and cut transportation funding.

The pandemic has shown that high-quality, reliable public transit service is essential for access to jobs, education, healthcare, and shopping. Affordable and accessible transit systems for all, provide good family-supporting jobs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution from our transportation system. Funding for public transportation will help Virginia provide reliable service that will increase ridership and help meet our climate goals.

Write a message to your representatives to oppose all legislation that will impact the Commonwealth’s ability to invest in our public transit and passenger rail infrastructure without a sustainable means to replace that funding.
