Sara Innamorato was elected because transit riders and transit workers took action to #VoteTransit. She laid out a big vision for transit and we want to help her make it happen.
Here's just some of what Sara said she wants to do with her new position:
🚌 Appoint at least one rider and one operator to the PRT board
🚌 Put a moratorium on service reductions and cuts
🚌 Create a permanent zero-fare program for all SNAP/EBT recipients
🚌 Build more affordable, transit-oriented development
🚌 Work with Mayor Gainey and other local leaders to invest infrastructure dollars to improve transit, and pass pro-transit zoning reforms at the municipal level
🚌 Establish more communication between PRT and the community and transit advocates
🚌 Fully implement a bulk pass discount program to get large employers to pre-pay for transit passes for their employees
🚌 Seek PILOT [Payment in Lieu of Taxes] payments or additional taxes from large employers and non-profits
🚌 Create a new position at PRT focused on language accessibility and disability access
See the full list of her priorities in our blog and send her a congratulations on her new position
Congrats to Sara [[link removed]]
