VOICES FOR PUBLIC TANSPORTATION

We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create an innovative and inclusive transportation system in the Bay Area.

WHO WE ARE

Voices for Public Transportation is a coalition of labor, community-based organizations, and equity advocates. As people who live, work, and travel in the Bay Area, we know that investing in our transportation system is essential for the health and wellness of our communities, environment, and economy.

 

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Our coalition was founded in 2018 to advance a game-changing regional transportation measure to invest in our transit system so that all Bay Area residents can get around affordably and easily while protecting the climate. VPT represents the voices of transit-dependent communities, many of whom are people with disabilities, low-income communities, and communities of color, who are too often excluded from local and regional transportation decisions.
