What Ideas Do We Stand For?

We are a dedicated grass roots all volunteer organization that advocates a balance of bus, subway, commuter rail, light rail, bike, airport access, goods movement, physically challenged access and automobile transportation to get Los Angeles Region moving again.

What issues do we advocate?

Short term: We deal with improving the quality of the existing rail and bus systems such as hours and frequencies of service, working facilities and improved signage.

Long Term: We work with political officials and staffers to encourage continued and increased Operating and Capital Funding. We examine myths, misinformation and misperceptions and rebut them using facts and evidence. We work with the community and transit users to demonstrate and mobilize a solid base of support to expand bike, bus and rail systems.

What Programs we are involved in?

  • We meet with Elected Officials and their staffs in Washington, DC; Sacramento, CA; and Southern California on critical transit issues.

  • We participate in various Community Outreach meetings to garner public support for the betterment of transit.

  • We have Transit Coalition Dinner Meetings regularly with Key Transit Officials as participants and as guest speakers.

  • We maintain Websites and Discussion Boards using the Internet to educate and evaluate issues of public interest.

  • We maintain effective communications with Elected Officials; Public and Private Directors and Managers; and the Media.

  • We participate at public meetings and hearings.
