Pennsylvania’s Transportation Funding Crisis
The tolling of Interstate 80 was expected to fund the Commonwealth’s transportation needs. Without it, the promise of Pennsylvania’s 2007 transportation funding law – known as Act 44 – will not be fulfilled, leaving public transit systems without a secure, reliable, comprehensive funding source. Public transit agencies need our Legislature to find a funding source now. The time to act is NOW! Write or visit your state legislators. Send a letter to the editor of your local paper. Please visit the following Web sites for more information:

Federal Transportation Legislation
We need your help urging our federal legislators to pass a long-term surface transportation bill. Please submit editorials to your local newspaper and contact the offices of Sen. Bob Casey, Sen. Patrick Toomey, Congressman Matt Cartwright and Congressman Tom Marino.
