Support Public Transit & Make a Difference with IM4Transit.org

March 11, 2011

If you agree that public transportation is important to the future of Florida, then IM4Transit.org is for you.

IM4Transit is a campaign sponsored by Florida’s thirty public transportation agencies to build a community of at least 100,000 transit supporters. In these times of rising gas prices and increasing traffic congestion, public transportation has never been more important. Transit creates jobs, gets people to work, it's green, helps America's energy independence, and provides an alternative to traffic congestion. No wonder that citizens and elected officials of all political parties support public transportation.

While most Floridians support public transportation, 85% of transit systems nationally are cutting service, raising fares, laying off. IM4Transit is a ready community of transit supporters in Florida that can be mobilized "to give transit a voice" during transit-related debates in the public marketplace of ideas. It’s a virtual community of transit riders, employees and stakeholders sustained by social media, web, and e-newsletters.

In order to help promote the launch of this new program, businesses have donated prizes like HDTV’s, gift cards, and an iPad2. If you support transit, simply visit IM4Transit.org and take 30 seconds to join. It’s free, it’s for a good cause, and you become eligible for the monthly prize drawings. You can also win a $25 gift card for recruiting 50 friends and whoever recruits the most friends by June 30, wins an iPad2.
