Stand up for Transportation Day to be held April 9th

(April 6, 2015) – Fort Wayne Citilink is inviting local & state elected officials to join in highlighting the urgent need to invest in Fort Wayne’s transportation infrastructure.

Communities Across the Nation Unite to Emphasize Need for Long-term Investment in U.S. Transportation Infrastructure before Expiration of the Federal Transportation Bill on May 31st.

WHO: Citilink Champions

WHAT: Stand Up for Transportation Day – With the future of America’s public transportation, roads, bridges and rail systems on the line, transportation and community leaders from across the country will unite on April 9, 2015 to highlight “Stand Up for Transportation Day.” Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), with support from national and local partners from transportation organizations, business and community oriented interests, Stand Up for Transportation Day will unite the voices of over 216 participating organizations in more than 140 communities across the country to focus on the urgency of the passage of a long-term, federal transportation bill.

WHY: The current federal transportation funding bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), is set to expire on May 31, 2015. Without a long-term federal transportation funding bill, Fort Wayne and communities across the country will face tremendous uncertainty. Transportation is the backbone of our local and national economy. A long-term transportation bill is needed for better and expanded transportation options, and to continue to grow our economy.
