HERE ARE SOME TIPS FOR THE CALL
Use a headset or hands-free — This will give you both hands to take notes about what was said.
Think about what you will say — Consider how better transit will make a difference in your life or that of your family members. Some examples include minimized congestion, shorter commuting times, more comfortable rides, more affordable service, better quality of life, helping to fight climate change, better air quality, etc. Even if you think your transit commute is pretty good, there is always room for improvement, and increased transit funding will help more people get out of their cars.
Be polite — MPs are our elected representatives. They will likely be happy to hear from engaged constituents. Most MPs will be very receptive to investment in transit, so we want to ensure we are encouraging them to support further investment, rather than being confrontational.
