April 9th - Stand UP 4 Transportation

08:00 AM - 03:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Stand UP 4 Transportation

National Day of Advocacy Focuses on Transportation Infrastructure Funding


The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) is making plans for a nationwide Stand Up for Transportation Day on Thursday, April 9, and is seeking a broad coalition of partners to participate in these events around the country.

This is an opportunity to call attention to the importance of infrastructure investment and the need for a long-term surface transportation authorization bill. MAP-21, which is the federal surface transportation legislation, expires on May 31.          

APTA is encouraging local organizations and advocates who support public transit and highway investment to participate in these events, which are being held while Congress is on recess. So far, more than 100 events are being organized. The organizations also will be undertaking media and social media activities around the day and the need for more investment.         

"Stand Up for Transportation Day is a single day when all transportation organizations and their coalition partners unite in common purpose with a unified message," said APTA Chair Phillip Washington, who serves as general manager and CEO of Denver's Regional Transportation District. "It's time to set aside partisanship and once again act in the best interest of our country to repair, strengthen and build transportation infrastructure."

To find out more about the day, the communities which are holding events, and how you can participate, visit apta.com/standup4transportation.
