I'm Stuck!

Im stuckThe free I’m Stuck app, made by Building America’s Future in partnership with the U.S. Travel Association, will allow delayed commuters around the country to directly and immediately email their U.S. Representative or Senator to share their frustration.

 

Every day, millions of Americans waste precious time, money and energy stuck in traffic, stuck on a tarmac, delayed on a subway or train. The I’m Stuck app will empower citizens to tell their Member Congress that it is time to reinvest in America.

 

The policies put in place, or the lack of a coherent long-term infrastructure plan, directly affects the daily experience of Americans trying to get around their communities. This app gives commuters and passengers an avenue to voice their frustrations to Congress. This innovative, real time communications tool is a new method of grassroots advocacy.  Members of Congress are going to hear daily from their constituents about how a lack of transportation and infrastructure funding is keeping America stuck in gridlock.  

 

Whether your local highway doesn’t have enough lanes to handle all the traffic or your local airport doesn’t have the capacity to deal with all of its flights, this is the app to ensure your voice will be heard.  With the I’m Stuck app, you can immediately contact your U.S. Representative or Senator from the plane, from public transit or from Amtrak, among other places. Governor Rendell, Co-Chair, Building America’s Future: “Usually commuters think traffic is like weather- it is something that happens to them and they have no control over it. But that isn’t the case at all. The policies we put in place, or the lack of a coherent long-term infrastructure plan, directly impacts the daily experience of Americans trying to get around their communities. This app gives commuters and passengers a tool to voice their frustrations to Congress. It is called ‘I’m Stuck,’ but the truth is America is stuck until Washington takes action.”
