All Aboard Erie is a direct development from the Discussion On Transportation of EnVision-Erie in 2009. Our first organizing meeting took place at the Whole Foods Cooperative.
We are a grass-roots organization which encourages the development of mass-transit in the tri-state area. This includes a shared vision with the Bike Erie Coalition to make Erie’s streets bicycle-friendly, limited involvement in the Public Advisory Committee of the Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority to improve local public transit, and education and publicity efforts toward the regional development of high-speed rail.
We need people to think about how they travel. Can you go by train to go on vacation or that out of town business meeting? Can you use the bus to get to work or a leisure event? Think before you put that key in the ignition.
