U.S. Reps create public transit caucus

U.S. Reps. Dan Lipinski (D-IL) and Michael Grimm (R-NY) have formed a public transit caucus aimed at addressing issues facing the country’s public transportation systems, including rail, light rail, bus rapid transit and traditional bus service.

The bipartisan Congressional Public Transportation Caucus will provide a forum for members of Congress to engage in constructive dialogue on the challenges and needs of mass transit agencies across the country as increasing demand and decreasing funding are putting unprecedented pressure on America’s public transportation systems.

“Maintaining and improving our public transportation systems must be a part of the solution to creating jobs at home and ensuring our competitiveness in the global marketplace," said Rep. Lipinski, who sits on the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee.
