1,000 Texans for Transit Advocacy Trainings

We don't have nearly enough transit funding for the 21st Century cities that power Texas' economy. So we're building a team to change that.

Texas state transportation funding needs reform to include direct transit funding for our large metro areas. We need Local Options to develop market-based regional taxes to fund safe, multimodal corridors including high-capacity transit.

As part of a comprehensive push for better transit planning and more transit funding, Farm&City is building a statewide network of transit advocates to better impact and inform legislation, beginning with the #TXLege in 2019.
