Overview:  Pennsylvania Transportation  Funding

Public Transportation
During 2002, CCJ expanded its statewide coalition of citizens, advocacy groups, and leaders from business, labor and industry to address the status of public transportation in Pennsylvania and formed the Campaign to Build Pennsylvania Public Transportation. The purpose of this campaign is to ensure sufficient and continued dedicated funding for mass transit by working with elected officials to introduce new initiatives and by building statewide support for a well-funded, safe, affordable, and accessible public transportation system.

Current Public Transit Issues:

  • The Governor and General Assembly have cut funds for public transportation leaving many transit authorities scrambling to make ends meet. Call the Governor's Office and your Pennsylvania members of the General Assembly.

  • Reauthorization of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA3) is in progress at the federal level.  This funding has provided not only highway dollars, but also money for public transportation. Congress is currently considering a number of proposals to reduce funding for public transportation and some Senators are even floating the idea of discontinuing funds for public transit altogether. Please call your Representative in the House as well as Senators Specter and Santorum and urge them to continue funding public transit though the reauthorization of TEA3 (see policy statement on TEA3).
