Our Issues

Restoring funding to federal bus programs is our main priority.  We are your voice in Washington, DC. 

Congressional Caucus

In partnership with key members of the House and Senate, TBC helped create the Bipartisan Congressional Bus Caucus.

Coalition Members

Representing 158+ members in 43 states and the District of Columbia, The Bus Coalition represents small, medium and large transit systems and stakeholders. 

The Bus Coalition is growing your influence on Capitol Hill. 

In 2015, TBC was successful in working with Hill champions to restore over $1 billion in funding to federal bus programs through the FAST Act. In FY18 and FY19, we were able to restore another $790 million through the appropriations process and we continue to seek additional appropriations in the FY20 round. We are just getting started. As we gear up for reauthorization in 2020, we need your support to build our network of bus champions on the Hill.

Buses By the Numbers

At the same time, total bus fleets contracted by 15% highlighting the impact of budget cuts on transit systems across the country.
