Thanks to your phone calls, emails, and vocal support, low-income students across California are one step closer to getting discount transit passes. Now, AB 17 is headed to the full Senate for a vote and it needs your help again!
AB 17 gives free or reduced-fare transit passes to students from middle school and college to help them get to class and work affordably. It would also reduce car traffic, air pollution, and the health risks associated with greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. In May, the language was amended to include $20 million from California’s Public Transportation Account. Click here to learn more about AB 17.
Please email your Senator and tell them to vote "YES" on AB 17! Calling your Senator is also incredibly helpful, and you can even do both!
