Support TRU's work to improve Detroit Transit!
Wondering what's happening with Detroit area transit, Supporter?
Then we've got the event for you!
Please join us at TRU's Annual Meeting on Monday, January 30, for presentations from and Q&A with the Detroit area's top transit executives about the State of Detroit Area Transit, including:
- RTA CEO Michael Ford
- DDOT Director Dan Dirks
- SMART General Manager John Hertel
- M-1 Rail's Sommer Woods
Doors open at 5:30pm for registration, refreshments and a networking reception with interactive small group activities. The program will run 6:00 – 8:00pm. A $5 donation is suggested to cover event costs but no one will be turned away.
The event will be at the MSU Detroit Center - 3408 Woodward, just south of the Mack stop. It's on all the Woodward bus lines and free, secure parking is available at a lot on Stimson Rd near Cass Ave.
Please RSVP by Jan 25 (so we know how much food to order). This event is open to everyone, so invite your friends too!
This Annual Meeting will also include a vote on new board members for TRU's Board of Directors, the volunteer governing body that shapes TRU's priorities and oversees our work. With a donation to TRU of as little as $5, you too can cast a vote, while making possible TRU's essential transit advocacy work. Nonmembers are welcome to attend but will not be able to cast a vote in the Board election.
I look forward to seeing you there!
PS - TRU is Detroit's nonprofit transit advocate, working since 1999 to improve bus service, remove barriers to rapid transit, and advocate for smart transportation investments
