The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) recently launched an online video wall featuring testimonials from transit riders across the nation. The goal is to give transit riders a voice and to encourage Congress to pass a long-term transportation bill that increases funding for public transportation.
Think of it as sort a multimedia petition for increased transit investment.
Currently there are over 160 videos on the site representing the broad range of individuals – from a senior citizen in Snohomish County, WA to a college student in Cincinnati, OH – who take advantage of public transportation. The wall isn’t done and the APTA is encouraging all transit riders the share their story – you can do so by visiting http://wall.publictransportation.org/ and uploading a video of your own.
If you do make a video, let us know and we’ll feature it on The Source.
