A message from Transportation for America

It's coming up fast: now we're hearing that the Senate climate change legislation will be unveiled this Monday. You only have a few days left to contact your senators and let them know you want this bill to invest in clean transportation options!

The EPA has calculated that a comprehensive set of strategies - including high-speed rail, mass transit, and intermodal freight - can reduce U.S. oil consumption by 4 to 7 million barrels per day in 2030.

We can reduce emissions from transportation, but we'll need to make sure this climate bill invests in clean transportation to make it happen. And to do that, we need a strong, last-minute push from you, your friends, and your family to get through to your senators.

Please take a moment to email your senators today before the legislation comes out - then ask your friends and family to do the same!
