Join Transportation for America next week for a kickoff event

For the past five years, Transportation for America has worked with advocates, allies and supporters to urge Congress to make smarter investments in America’s transportation system.

Next week, Transportation for America is starting something new: An alliance of business, elected and civic leaders from cities, towns and suburbs across the nation. These community leaders know how critical it is to invest in a robust transportation network that can support local economies. And we know stronger local economies build a stronger America.

You are invited to the kick-off event. On November 19, hear these leaders discuss why their local economies need better transportation investments, and the actions Congress must take in the coming year. Visit Transportation for America’s website to watch a live webcast of the event, and join the conversation on Twitter at @T4America.

Local Economies, National Prosperity
WHAT: Community leaders make the economic case for federal investment in transportation
WHEN: Tuesday, November 19, 2013
8:30 AM—1:00 PM EST

The coming year will be an important one for transportation in the United States. Congress must act to address the deep deficit in the transportation fund and renew the soon-to-expire federal transportation bill.

Transportation for America is helping communities across the country grow stronger, and as a program of Smart Growth America, we’re proud of this new phase of Transportation for America’s work. Next week’s event is just the beginning.
