Tuesday, Feb. 4 is Transit Equity Day
Tomorrow, February 4 th is T ransit Equity Day . February 4th was selected because it will mark the 107th birthday of Rosa Parks. Just as Rosa Parks helped to lead a movement to oppose injustice in the Montgomery bus system, work continues today to ensure that public transportation is accessible and affordable to all. Now in its third year, Transit Equity Day calls attention to disparities in transit access and air quality.

To commemorate Transit Equity Day , the Transportation and Public Works Committee of the Minneapolis City Council will vote on a resolution regarding the proposed expansion of the Interstate 94/Highway 252 corridor. The neighborhoods along this corridor experience some of the state’s worst air pollution. The resolution calls for bus rapid transit (BRT) to be included in the project. The inclusion of BRT would help to reduce traffic emissions and bring rapid transit service to communities with high transit ridership.

 Celebrate Transit Equity Day together with Labor Network For Sustainability and Sierra Club North Star Chapter at Minneapolis City Hall, 350, S 5th St, Minneapolis on Tuesday, February 4, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. as City of Minneapolis Government Transportation Committee votes on a Resolution of Support for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) on I-94 in North Minneapolis!
