Citizens for Modern Transit is excited to announce it is a recipient of a grant under the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) Local Transit Coalition Grant Program. The grant will allow CMT to focus on creating statewide messages based on the results of the CMT commissioned Transit Funding Study.
“Grassroots transit organizations can be the catalyst for positive changes in communities, especially coalitions with the record of success as Citizens for Modern Transit. NAPTA is pleased to support their efforts to promote transit as a strategy for sparking economic growth, enhancing quality of life, and underpinning vibrant communities across the St. Louis region.”–Art Guzzetti, Vice President – Policy, American Public Transportation Association
The goal of the grant-funded messaging is to educate state legislators about the importance of transit and begin to build consensus for a funding package to improve public transit in Missouri.
