Fort Worth to stand up for transportation

🕐 1 min read

Ensuring future transportation funding has led the Fort Worth Transportation Authority to join more than 215 agencies nationwide in participating in Stand Up for Transportation Day.

Set for Thursday April 9, the event is expected to unite 216 participating organizations in more than 140 communities to highlight the urgency of passing a long-term, federal transportation bill.

The idea is to promote support before the current federal transportation bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, expires on May 31, 2015.

Without a long-term federal transportation funding bill, Fort Worth and communities across the country will face tremendous uncertainty, according to the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, or The T.

Scheduled to address that need at Thursday’s event are Paul Ballard, president and CEO of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, or The T; Rosa Navejar, Rios Group president; and Bob Babbitt, McDonald Transit Associates Inc. president. They are set to speak at 9 a.m. at the Intermodal Transportation Center, 1001 Jones St. in Fort Worth.

Sponsoring the event is the American Public Transportation Association, with support from national and local partners from transportation organizations.
