Bridge Tolls

Support the MTA Rescue: Be Your Own Lobbyist

As debate on the MTA rescue plan is reduced to stall tactics and race-baiting, the Campaign for New York's Future is organizing a Lobby Day citizen bus trip to Albany, set for next Wednesday, March 18.

With several State Senators saying they will refuse to pass a funding plan that includes bridge tolls, your voice is crucial to make sure our leaders know that a fair transit funding plan asks everyone who benefits from transit to contribute – including businesses and drivers – not just transit riders.

Most importantly, your presence in Albany puts a human face on the transit crisis by telling the story of one of the many constituents – YOU – who would be impacted by the whopping 23% fare hike and draconian subway and bus cuts.

The RSVP deadline is this Friday. Sign up here.
