You're invited, Supporter!
TRU's 4th annual Regional Transit Awards dinner will be on May 7 and you won't want to miss it!
Join transit staff, elected leaders, community advocates, and other supporters for a wonderful evening celebrating important transit progress of the past year.
Twenty individuals will be recognized for their hard work and dedication to improving transit, in categories such as Unsung Heroes, Exemplary Innovation, and Transit Employee of the Year. One person in each category will bring home the coveted Regional Transit Award trophy!
Buy your tickets today to enjoy the hors d'oeuvres reception, silent auction, three course dinner, wine, and awards ceremony for $75 each (if you buy your tickets before April 17). Full tables of 8 are available, so invite your family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors too!

There is so much to celebrate in our effort for world-class transit, yet so much more work to be done. Please join us in making this the best Regional Transit Awards yet!
