The 23,300-plus signatures on an online petition APTA collected in the run-up to Stand Up 4 Transportation Day, April 9, were released on the day public transportation officials and advocates gathered for a rally on Capitol Hill to kick off Infrastructure Week, May 11-15. Participating in the rally are former DOT Secretary Ray LaHood, co-chair of Building America’s Future Educational Fund, at the podium; Linda Watson, president and chief executive officer, Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Austin, TX, back row, second from left; and Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker, president, National League of Cities, third from right. In addition, many other mayors attended the event as they joined in a national advocacy day urging Congress to enact a long-term surface transportation bill.
