TRU Let’s Talk Transit meeting and training
Feb 12 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

One of the biggest barriers to great transit is persuading non-riders that transit is worth investing in. Let’s Talk Transit is our volunteer speakers bureau program that accomplishes just that. Through presentations to and conversations with community groups throughout southeast Michigan, we’re building the public support needed for transit to expand and thrive.

Join the team! We need volunteers to help arrange presentations with community groups, to video tape them, and to be trained to present or co-present. Contact team lead Kristen Milefchek for more information and to sign up!
