Washington Post: Nationís transit agencies ask Congress for $25 billion

The nationís largest public transit agencies said Monday that they need at least $25 billion in federal aid to survive the impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on their systems.

Ten agencies, led by New Yorkís Metropolitan Transportation Authority, sent a letter to leaders on Capitol Hill with their request, hoping to ensure their collective voice is heard over lobbying from airlines, automakers, small businesses and all the other sectors asking for emergency bailouts.
