Trying to rally people to call into two interview shows next week focused on transportation. Summary of talking points below.
It is important to show support for a comprehensive transportation funding solution that accounts for all modes of transportation including walking and biking. There will be plenty of opposition.
1) TUESDAY MARCH 19th at 7PM – Sens. Rafferty and Wozniak on PCN call-in show.
2) FRIDAY MARCH 22nd at 2PM – Sec. of Transportation on KDKA radio call-in show.
Some talking points: 1. Make sure bike/ped projects are competitive and sufficiently funded in new multimodal fund being talked about by Secretary Schoch and the Governor.
2. Given that 12% of all trips in PA are by foot and by bike and account for 11% of the fatalities and zero percent of state hwy safety funding, it’s time that a bike/ped office is set up at the state level to oversee bike/ped projects and policies.
