Stop Federal Transportation Cuts

This petition had 44 supporters

Pennslyvania,  Pittsburgh and Erie in particular, can not afford anymore cuts to bus transportation aka "transit".  The Executive Branch (President Trump) will have cut 375 Million dollars at least, from transit funds, according to WPXI's report on Sept 7, 2017 (the 11 PM edition).  Students take transit to get to colleges.  The impact will be huge in Pittsburgh cutting half of all routes, and shutting down one station, in addition to the loss of jobs that could be 20 fold of what was seen in 2012 when 35 million dollars was cut and over 200 people lost their jobs at Port Authority.  The cuts to Erie will also be catastrophic potentially shutting down the entire Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority.  Many disabled, like myself, and seniors rely on the Reduced Fare  due to their limited incomes.  So many, like me, use transit to get to their doctors, family, colleges, supermarkets, and more.  Please take action and do NOT ALLOW cuts to be made to the Department of Transportation on the Federal levels and State levels.
