Neighborhood by neighborhood, Riders Alliance members are fighting for better public transit service at affordable fares for all New Yorkers. Join a campaign to help win our ambitious 2016 agenda!
1. State Funding for Public Transit
We’re organizing riders to fight for the funds we need to keep our subways and buses running. Visit ridersny.org/funding or contact masha [@] ridersny.org to join the fight for public funding for public transit!
2. #FairFares for Low-Income Riders
Hundreds of thousands of very low-income New Yorkers can’t afford MetroCards, even though they rely on public transportation. Visit ridersny.org/fairfares or contact rebecca [@] ridersny.org to campaign for fair fares for low-income riders!
3. Bus Turnaround
Buses in New York City are slow, unreliable, and unfortunately getting worse for bus riders that have lower incomes and can not afford a car and live far from a subway. Visit ridersny.org/busturnaround or contact Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the Bus Turnaround Campaign.
