In response to changing (reduced) transportation funding revenues in Pennsylvania and continuing needs in the Southeast Pennsylvania region, PenTrans has created the Southeast Pennsylvania Alliance for Transportation Funding. This Alliance will work with government and partner organizations to examine a wide range of transportation funding options and advocate for appropriate legislative and funding program solutions. The Alliance includes diverse interests from the business and community development (non-business) sectors throughout SE Pennsylvania. More information is available here, including the opportunity to join the Alliance.
Equitable. Accessible. Inclusive.
As Act 89 funding comes to a close, a large funding gap exists in transportation infrastructure. Learn more about the funding gap in the Transportation Infrastructure and Economic Briefing.
Our mission is to advance a comprehensive transportation funding strategy to ensure equitable, accessible and inclusive mobility and power a prosperous economy in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Our goal is to leverage the support of key stakeholders to advocate for the successful transfer of the Act 89 obligation in the state budget proposal currently under negotiation, as well as advocate for House Bill 2366 and other measures that implement local funding options.
