Donate Today to Keep Up the Fight for Improved Transit!


Wow. You’ve really inspired me!

I asked for your thoughts post-ballot measure and boy did you respond! Not only did more than 120 people complete the survey so far, the thought and passion in those responses was awesome:

“Our mass transit system is a series of walls. We need to bridge our greater metropolitan area to create greater opportunity for all citizens.”

“Your work is so important, and you will win out in the end! Keep it up."

“If there is one thing that will improve Metro Detroit for all people, and I literally mean ALL people, it’s a comprehensive mass transit system.

“You guys do a great job given our region's history and limitations. You wear a lot of hats and you balance them damn well.”

"We are not a world stage player without it.”

“Keep up the fight! Regional transit will happen in the Motor City, it's just going to take time. And thank you for all of your hard work this election cycle and everyday.”

You articulate beautifully why it is so important that we continue to fight for more and better transit. With your support, TRU will keep up the fight!

Your past support of $max) max=parseFloat(d.amount); if (lastDate==null || d.Transaction_Date>lastDate){ lastDate=d.Transaction_Date; lastAmount=d.amount; } }else{ continue; } } if (num>0) amountAvg=amountAvg/num; amount=max;amount=amount; } if (amount==null){ print(50) }else{ print(Math.max(5,Math.round(amount))); } ?> was essential in the enormous progress we've made over the past 15 years. Though we lost this transit round, we know the region not only needs transit, people WANT transit. The ballot measure received over 250 endorsements from major business, elected, faith and community leaders and nearly 900,000 people voted YES! Thank you for helping make that happen. 

Now it’s time to redouble our efforts to educate voters about the importance of transit, to mobilize supporters to get involved, and to pressure political leaders to support these efforts.

Your continued support will make that work possible.
