A bipartisan pair of lawmakers in the House announced on Thursday that they were forming a caucus for public transportation supporters.
The lawmakers, Rep. Daniel Lipinski (D-Ill.) and Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.), said the caucus would “provide a forum for members of Congress to engage in constructive dialogue on the challenges and needs of mass transit agencies across the country.”
“Buses, trains, and light rail that run safely and reliably reduce congestion on our roads, improve travel times across all modes, cut down on air pollution, and make our communities more attractive places to live, work, and own businesses,” Lipinski said in a statement.
