Legislative Advocacy Afternoon

Please join APTA on Tuesday, March 14, for an Advocacy Afternoon to advocate for public transit and passenger rail. Your voice is instrumental as Congress considers the FY 2024 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (THUD) Appropriations bill and other critical legislation.

While in Washington, DC, APTA strongly encourages members to participate in an APTA Advocacy Afternoon and meet with Members of Congress following the last session of the 2023 APTA Legislative Conference. APTA will coordinate in-person visits with your Members of Congress the afternoon of Tuesday, March 14, between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. ET. Please be aware that meetings may take place anytime during this window. In addition, APTA will provide a location on Capitol Hill to take a break in between meetings.

To match you with your Members of Congress, please complete this form in its entirety to ensure the proper in-person meetings are scheduled on your behalf.

APTA has secured the first floor of the Ferguson Townhouse on Capitol Hill for APTA members to take a break in between meetings with Members of Congress or staff. The townhouse -- located on the Senate side of Capitol Hill at 203 Maryland Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20002 -- will be open to APTA members from 12:00 to 5:00pm. Light refreshments will be available.

A separate advocacy training and logistics webinar will be provided to Advocacy Afternoon registrants prior to March 14.

If you have any questions for APTA, please email Melissa Mejias, Senior Legislative Representative, Government Affairs and Advocacy.
