Public transit ridership is growing across the country, with subway systems, bus networks, and light rail helping Americans get to their destinations quickly and safely and supporting businesses that need reliable commuter systems for their employees. TTD and its member unions:
Collaborate with the Jobs to Move America coalition to ensure that federal transit investment dollars support the U.S. economy and are used to create manufacturing jobs and generate opportunities for unemployed and disadvantaged Americans including veterans.
Implement policies, procedures, and designs—like drivers’ side doors, shields, and increased restroom availability—to slow the alarming rate of driver assaults and protect bus drivers’ safety and health.
Work with members of Congress to provide emergency funding to transit systems in times of emergency such as the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.
