Next Tuesday, August 14th, I am hosting a happy hour for The Riders Alliance, an important new organization. I hope you will join me.
Riders Alliance New York is a new organization that’s on the ground, organizing mass transit riders into a political constituency—to stop the destructive cycle of fare hikes (another one is scheduled for next March), service cuts and longer, more uncomfortable commutes.
Mass transit is an essential part of what makes New York City the dynamic, creative and economically vibrant city we love. It defines New York more than the skyline or the bright lights ever could. Yet our elected officials continue to let this vital service languish.
Riders Alliance aims to stop this trend. Over five Million people ride public transit in New York every day. That is a powerful constituency. Please join us on Tuesday as we start to mobilize. Of course, we’ll ask you for support at the event, but there’s no charge to attend, and there are happy hour drink specials as well.
Please RSVP at http://www.ridersny.org/event.php that you’ll join us on Tuesday, August 14th for happy hour drinks and a spirited discussion with Executive Director John Raskin about the Riders Alliance and the fight for better transit in New York. Details are below:
