Citizens Supporting Dedicated Funding for Public Transit
Could you imagine having to leave 3 hours early for work just so you could be on time? Lynx transit riders do. Or, having to work 8 hours straight without a bathroom break? Lynx bus drivers do.
The People's Transit Movement has very simple demands:
Please read and sign the petition below:
We the undersigned are voting transit rider of Lynx Bus Services and supporters of public transportation. We are advocating that Orange County Commissioners collectively engage in supporting a source of dedicated funding that will generate new sources of revenue to support our current Lynx services. We are in support of our Orange County Commissioners passing an ordinance that would allocate dedicated funding revenue for Lynx bus services.
Equitable public transportation is essential to Central Florida communities. We are in support of a transit system that is funded public, investing in good transit jobs and expanding fixed route service.
Thank you for your special attention and insight into the importance of public transportation.
Moving forward, CF-JwJ will be hitting the streets mobilizing transit riders, community and labor organizations and working class communities to come together to address the systemic inequalities in our bus services. The time is now where workers and their communities must organize around improving the public transit system.
