NFTA Low Income Public Transportation Fare Reduction Advocacy: Bob Mahoney on The Public Good

Join us on The Public Good this week! We’ll hear from Bob Mahoney, business representative at SEIU Local 200 United discussing recent advocacy work for reduced NFTA fares for low-income riders. Bob represents many low-wage employees who rely on public transportation to get to and from work, some of whom also rely on subsidies like food stamps and Medicaid. He and his partners are highlighting a need for public transit subsidies similar to those of senior citizens and differently abled riders.

The show will air live on Power 96.5 WNY at 10pm, and on PPG’s Facebook page at 1pm Tuesday, March 26th. You won’t want to miss it!
