Statewide Transportation Coalition Formed

Following the successful Transportation Means Business last April in Montgomery, a group has formed the next step as a follow-up.  It is called the Alabama Transit Coalition and is made up of many groups from around the state including our League.  Our Alabama League of Women Voters Board voted last month to approve the League's membership in the organization.  Approximately 20 organizations and members agreed to join at the initial meeting in February.  
Here is the basic message of the Coalition.
The Alabama Transit Coalition is a multidisciplinary partnership whose mission is to strengthen statewide transit options.
The Alabama Transit Coalition provides regular, ongoing opportunities for participating organizations and interested individuals to:

  • identify barriers to public transportation
  • find solutions to those barriers
  • share information
  • coordinate services
  • collaborate
  • leverage resources
  • explore strategies to fill service gaps
  • be the voice of the citizens
Alabama Transit Coalition participation is open  to representatives of organizations and/or individuals interested in its  purpose.
