| Hi Supporter! Are you visiting with family this summer?
Disjointed transit shouldn't prevent family from getting together.
Help TRU Build Support for Better Transit:
Last summer, Dorothy scraped up the money to fly her grandson Kenny to meet his cousins down in Atlanta at a big family reunion that happens just every five years.
But since Dorothy is in a wheelchair, getting to the airport proved to be even harder.
Up at 4am for a 11am flight, Dorothy and Kenny had to spend over four hours on three different buses. One late bus meant they missed their connecting bus and nearly missed their flight.
This is just one example of southeast Michigan’s disjointed regional transit.
Will her experience be any better next trip?
Only if southeast Michigan improves our region's transit.
TRU is fighting to make that happen!
