Community Hearing on Transit Equity: A National Conversation

February 3, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - February 4, 2021 @ 3:00 pm

Tell Decisionmakers Why We Need Transit
The sponsoring organizations are part of a national Transit Equity Network advocating for a transportation system centered around equity, climate justice and workers’ rights.

With the funding of public transit in jeopardy and the urgent need for a national recovery bill that includes transit, it is especially important to hear directly from transit stakeholders about what they need from a transportation system. To that end, Transit Equity Days 2021 will be a virtual convening of transit users, workers, and all who rely on transit, to testify about their needs and hopes for safe, reliable, affordable transit.

The Community Hearing on Transit Equity will be open for public participation, and a panel of community members and activists will act as hearing facilitators. Testimony will be recorded for subsequent use in discussions with governmental decision-makers. There will also be an opportunity for written statements.

  • Wednesday, February 3, 2021
    3 p.m. – 7 p.m. Eastern
  • Thursday, February 4, 2021
    11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Eastern

Goal of the Community Hearing
The goal is to influence decision makers and our fellow constituents, all who play an important role in the survival and expansion of robust public transportation systems so riders from all walks of life have safe and reliable means of transportation to get where they need to be, when they need to be there, without struggle, financial stress and experiencing prejudice. Through these hearings, we also strive for the safe working conditions and continued employment of all transit and transport workers.
