On May 12th, Assemblymember Phil Ting is hosting a Budget Town Hall in San Francisco. Come hear a presentation about the California State Budget, then give feedback that’ll help shape our next priorities.
We encourage you to attend and represent the needs of your members for public transit. If you cannot attend in person, you can send emails or post on social media through the link below!
Transit agencies across the California are running out of cash to maintain critical transit service. According to a CA Transit Association survey, 72% of agencies face shortfalls when the one-time federal relief money runs out. Between now and 2028, the state’s transit agencies will need $6 billion to prevent major cuts and improve service to regrow ridership.
SFTR is part of a growing statewide coalition calling on the state Legislature and Governor to avert this crisis and help transit survive and thrive. We are asking for a multi-year $6 billion commitment from the state to sustain vital transit service and support ridership recovery while operators and government agencies work to create a long-term plan to regrow ridership and create a new, sustainable financial model for public transit.
