The Transit Coalition is in dire straits. Despite various initiatives to advocate for public transportation improvements (including those from the CSUN Transportation Tiger Team), we need critical funds to continue preparing and distributing our weekly and monthly newsletters. Our October edition of Moving Southern California is ready to print, but without funding we are unable to do so. Many of our readers enjoy and depend on these news sources to learn about transportation policy that affects Southern Californians in real and tangible ways.
As a result, your help is needed to achieve our fundraising campaign goal of $5,000, which will go towards preserving this eNewsletter and resuming printing of our monthly newsletter. If we do not reach our fundraising goal by Friday, November 1, we will have no choice but to suspend publication of both newsletters. Please help us reach our goal by making a donation. Your contributions are greatly appreciated!
Efforts by the Tiger Team to improve mass transit include enhancing transfer connections between Metro Bus and Metrolink, connecting Sylmar and Northridge with Metro Rapid service, improving Orange Line service, and advancing other potential projects. Meanwhile, The Transit Coalition continues to bring renowned transportation experts and officials to speak at dinner meetings and inform attendees on projects and developments. The Transit Coalition has also succeeded in advocating expansion of Metrolink weekend service, one of the critical tenets of our Metrolink MAX campaign. These and other Transit Coalition initiatives would also be in jeopardy without your continued support. Please don’t hesitate to make a contribution so that our work continues undisturbed. Thank you for your continued support.
