About the Transit for All PA! Campaign & Coalition

Transit for all PA! is an emerging statewide coalition of transit riders, transit workers, and transit-supportive organizations and businesses. Together, we are working to expand Pennsylvania’s public transit systems to grow our economy and connect more Pennsylvanians to jobs, healthcare, and essential needs.

Over the last year, we have been coming together with transit riders and transit workers from all corners of the state to prepare a plan in the midst for the state’s looming budget shortfall that will be left after PA’s major transit funding act, ACT 89, expires in 2022.

Together we released a Transit Funding Platform to Move All Pennsylvanians in the spring of 2021. This platform puts forward a series of values and legislative goals for the replacement of Act 89. We have also worked with Pennsylvania’s top public policy think-tanks to offer a “menu” of possible funding mechanisms for PA transit. 

We see this moment as critical, not only for conserving those services that make our economy run, but for widening our vision of what is possible with robust public transit.

Public transit creates the possibility of connection—meaning a stronger economy, a more resilient environment, and a higher quality of life–and we are fighting for Transit to Move All Pennsylvanians.
