CELEBRATE TRNSIT EQUITY DAYS: JANUARY 31 THROUGH FEBRUARY 4

Since 2018, Transit Equity Day has been celebrated on February 4, Rosa Parks’ birthday, to highlight the importance of public transportation in ensuring access to services, jobs, education, and life for millions of Americans. This year, the La Crosse Area Transit Advocates is partnering with the La Crosse MTU, the Coulee Region Sierra Club and other organizations to educate about local and regional public transportation. Plans are still being finalized but there will be a display at the public library and the Grand River Transit Center and, we hope, some opportunities for residents to “Ride with your Representative.” More details will be posted at tinyurl.com/LaXTED2022 by January 15.
