What Our Members Say…

Bus system leaders across the country are what make the Coalition work. We hope you’ll join and add to voices like these:

Richard DeRock

Link Transit
Wenatchee, WA

“For years, bus systems sat on the sidelines and hoped that the importance of bus transit to our country would become clear. Now we are taking action. Together. “

Edgar Benning

Flint, MI

“Buses play crucial roles in our communities in times of need. Like our cities, our systems need The Bus Coalition’s voice in Washington, DC.”

Lee Engle

Fmr Exec. Director Antelope Valley Transit Lancaster, CA

“In three decades of transit management and state and local advocacy, The Bus Coalition did more than any other organization I was ever a part of. As the network grows, its impact will only grow stronger.”

Donna DeMartino

San Joachin RTD
Stockton, CA

“In states like California, with major cities that depend on rail, medium sized bus agencies like San Joaquin RTD often got lost in the shuffle. The Bus Coalition has given bus agencies a common voice in places large and small. “
