Time to Act Now to Protect Public Transit

Let's put the pressure on the NYS legislature, using every tool at our
disposal, to urge increased NYS funding for public transit!

Below is a link to two on-line petitions now circulating. The link is
from a blog by New York State Transportation Equity Alliance (CRT is a
member). Within that blog there is a link to NYS Sen. Grisanti's
petition.
