Join us March 4 & 5, 2013 for Transit Awareness Day! The two-day advocacy program will include an Invest in Transit rally, meetings with lawmakers, a legislative reception, and "Transit Means Business" displays in The Well of our state's Legislative Office Building (LOB) in Albany.
Last year's Transit Awareness Day was successful because of YOU! This year's program will build on that success and drive home the message that public transportation is a driving force for New York State's economy. All NYPTA business partners, with a special emphasis on companies with a presence in New York State, are encouraged to attend Transit Awareness Day and share information about the impact their company has on New York State's economic success.
