Give Riders a Voice Rally
May 18, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Bidwell Park, Elmwood and Bidwell (one block north of Delavan), Buffalo, NY.
Come out in support of elevating Rider’s Voices!! You don’t have to be a rider to want the people to have a voice in the system. A better transit system benefits everyone, and who better to identify the problems and solutions than those who are trying to navigate this city every day on a system that regularly fails them. So come out and make some noise with us! Thank those who support the need for #RidersOnTheBoard and call out the NFTA for actively working against an opportunity to work alongside the people they are supposed to serve.
We are asking everyone to wear a blue shirt in solidarity. Everyone will receive free BTRU stickers to wear and to take home. Come ready to have fun and take some pictures!
This rally is in support of Assembly Bill A6168- which will require 2 voting members of transit authority boards, including NFTA, to be transit riders! It’s passed in the state Senate, time to get this bill passed in the Assembly and made into law!!
