Amtrak and transit workers need funding to keep their jobs!

“Significant action now can help prevent calamity later as rail and transit agencies continue to provide essential service…Without additional relief, Amtrak and transit agencies, which provide essential transportation services for workers on the front lines of this pandemic, may need to consider service cuts, station closures, layoffs, or suspending planned projects in addition to ensuring operations can be ramped up in the aftermath of the immediate public health crisis.”
