Stop the NexGen 20% Service Cut to MTA Bus Service
This Wednesday Metro will host a Budget Public Hearing on the 2021 Budget. Metro Plans to make semi finalized plans on their NextGen(trification) Bus Project which will cut Bus Service by 20%. We want MTA to Stop ALL bus service cuts and double the bus service NOW! These Service cuts are a direct attack on the Black communty, the Latinx Community, and the Planet. LA is the Car Capital of the world and Black people in particular have been targeted on Metro buses and trains with “Fare Evasion” tickets attempting to drive them/us off the trains and buses. The MTA says that ridership is down so they want to cut more service. No, if you lower the fares to zero and double the bus service you will also double your ridership. We need as many people as possible to make public comments in support of the Bus Riders Union and against the NextGen 20% Bus Service Cuts. Use the button below to let us know you’ll make it.

Exposition & Crenshaw Blvd
Free Public Transportation Double MTA Bus Service Now Rally
Join us Saturday as we build momentum for our Fight Transit Racism campaign. While the MTA has annouced a “study” for Free Public Transportation we want them to implent it not just study it. The MTA also announced a 20% Service Cut while continuing to fund rail construction projects to nowhere. Crenshaw and Exposition has become a key intersection in South LA where the current Expo line will exchange with the coming Crenshaw line, but only after a significant cuts and redirection of service to force bus riders to use rail service they originally had no intention of using.
