Good transit makes cities and communities better.

  • AC Transit is a critical, lifeline service that our community relies upon.
  • Abundant transit connects us with jobs, shopping, essential services and life, and is part of how we achieve affordable, equitable cities.
  • Transit reduces traffic congestion and pollution, and benefits even those who choose not to ride.

Bay Area residents deserve robust, reliable, and resilient transit.

  • Transit should be frequent, fast, affordable, pleasant, and easy to use.
  • Transit is key to getting cars off the road, combating climate change, and improving the environment.
  • We must make transit competitive with driving to attract riders and increase public benefits.

Now is the time for big ideas and bold leadership.

  • We have to ensure that Bay Area transit not only survives the coronavirus crisis but comes out stronger and better.
  • We must seek out best practices from cities across the US and world to ensure the health and safety of riders and workers and bring back ridership.
  • We need creativity and collaboration to achieve a seamless regional transportation network that serves everyone.
