Dear Friends,****

** **

2013 promises to be a decisive year for transit funding. Thanks to the
leadership of riders, advocates, our legislature and the administration,
transit has come to the forefront of next year’s session.****

** **

Public Transit-Public Good, a campaign of the Green Justice Coalition, is a
statewide partnership that has brought together hundreds of riders and
workers to push for a more equitable, sustainable and well-funded transit
system in our Commonwealth.  We believe an investment in public transit –
and the infrastructure that supports it – will grow our state economy and
slash greenhouse gas emissions while increasing access to work,
educational, civic and social opportunities across region, class and race.**

** **

We are excited to put forth our ideas for solutions to the transit puzzle
in our new report, "Route to Our Future: Transit Solutions for Equity,
Sustainability, and Economic Growth in the Commonwealth”. Please join
us *November
27th at 10AM* for a first look at the report.****

*WHAT: *Policy Briefing and Report Release**


*WHO:* Public Transit-Public Good Campaign; transit riders, workers and
community leaders from across the state.****
