Support TRU's work to improve Detroit Transit!


What's your vision for regional transit, Supporter?

The Regional Transit Authority is launching their public outreach to start Building Equitable Sustainable Transit (the BEST!). With our help, they are reaching out to every corner of the region to ask why transit matters and where we want it to take us.

The kickoff is tomorrow, Tuesday, May 12, 11:30am at Campus Martius in downtown Detroit.

Come out to share your ideas and show your support!

Then they're taking the show on the road.

Next week the RTA is hosting daylong enagement events in each county. Stop by any of these at any point in the afternoon/evening to share your thoughts and ideas:

  • Washtenaw County 
    • Monday, May 18, 1pm-7:30pm
    • At EMU Student Center in Ypsilanti
  • Eastern Wayne County
    • Tuesday, May 19, 1pm-7:30pm
    • WCCCD NW campus in Detroit
  • Western Wayne County
    • Tuesday, May 19, 1pm-7:30pm
    • UM Dearborn, Farline Center North Building
  • Macomb County
    • Wednesday, May 20, 1pm-7:30pm
    • MCC Lorenzo Cultural Center in Clinton Township
  • Oakland County
    • Thursday, May 21, 1pm-7:30pm
    • Royal Oak Elks Lodge, 2401 E 4th St.

Please help spread the word! 

  • Share it with your Facebook friends.
  • Forward this email to your friends, neighbors, colleagues, and anyone else in southeast Michigan!
  • Print and post the info at your office, in your building, or elsewhere.
  • Talk it up with friends and invite a friend to come with you!

This is just the beginning!

Throughout June, July and beyond, RTA staff and consultants plan to travel the breadth of the region asking people why transit matters and where we want it to take us. 

TRU will be out in the community as well, talking transit at fairs, festivals, farmers markets, fireworks, and elsewhere. Contact Ruth to volunteer to help!

You can bring the RTA to your community! If you can bring 20-40 people together, arrange the time and location with the RTA scheduler, and someone from the RTA team will be there to talk transit with your community!

Together we'll create the transit plan our region wants, needs, and is willing to pay for!
