Here is Citizens for Regional Transit's 2013 Annual Report.
KEEP CRT ON TRACK IN 2023!
Citizens for Regional Transit continues to shape and accelerate the conversation around improvement and expansion of bus and rail transit for all citizens of the Niagara Frontier.
We held public informational meetings to facilitate inclusive conversations on issues critical to expanding transit in the region.
We brought citizens, experts, and policymakers together to address issues including: the implications of midterm election results for transit funding; electricity and hydrogen as alternative energy sources for transit; and East Side development and transit access.
Throughout the year, we have been busy with letters, opinion pieces, and interviews in local media; meetings with state and federal government representatives, presentations to community groups; information tables at events; attendance at meetings of transportation agencies and community organizations; written and oral comments on regional transportation plans; and more.
CRT relies on members for all ongoing expenses. We are entirely staffed by volunteers, so contributions go directly to promoting transit. Your membership fosters our continuing and expanded efforts. You can help to keep this momentum going in 2023.

The National Highway Trust Fund (an important source for transit funding) is going broke!
As cars are becoming more fuel-efficient and Americans are driving fewer miles, there is a lot less gas tax revenue collected; the highway trust fund is becoming exhausted. The federal gasoline tax hasn't been raised since 1993 and has never been indexed to inflation. Given this looming fiscal cliff, doing nothing is not an option.
