Who Are We?

The Transit Coalition is a dedicated, grassroots, all-volunteer organization that advocates a balance between many transportation modes. Our interest is in improving bus, subway, commuter rail, light rail, bike, airport access, goods movement, physically challenged access, and automobile transportation in Southern California.

What Issues Do We Advocate?

Short term: We work with representatives from local and regional transportation agencies, elected officials and community members to improve the quality of the existing rail and bus systems such as hours and frequencies of service, working facilities and improved signage. We mobilize interested groups and individuals to ask agencies and officials for added transit service andincreased operating and capital funding.

Long Term: We work with political officials and staffers to support major transit improvements and identify possible sources of funds. We examine myths, misinformation and misperceptions and rebut them using facts and evidence.

What Activities Do Our Members Engage 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 every month with key transit officials as participants and as guest speakers.

  • We maintain websites and a discussion boards on the Internet to educate and evaluate issues of public interest and allow prospective activists to participate in an easy and informative manner.

  • We maintain effective communications with elected officials, public and rrivate agency directors and managers, business leaders, and the media.

  • We participate at public meetings and hearings
