Today the Empire State Transportation Alliance announced the release of new subway and bus ads aimed at mobilizing riders to speak up to stop fare hikes and service cuts.
The ads are posted in 3,000 New York City subway cars and urge riders to visit KeepNewYorkMoving.org and tell Governor Paterson and state legislative leaders to support a plan that would provide critical funds to close the MTA’s $1.2 billion operating deficit this year and fund the agency’s next capital construction program. The ads were created by Robbett Advocacy Media.
ESTA is a coalition of dozens of business, labor, environmental, transportation, and planning organizations working for investment in New York’s transportation system. The coalition includes Tri-State Transportation Campaign, Regional Plan Association, General Contractors Association, NYPIRG/Straphangers Campaign, Environmental Defense Fund, New York League of Conversation Voters, and Transportation Alternatives.
