CAC

Give Thanks. Give Back. Get Involved!

The holiday season is an important time to not only give thanks for the many good things you have but also to give back to the community that helped provide them.

If you agree that a great public transit system would be a great benefit to the greater Detroit region, here are three important ways you can give back:

1) Apply to join TRU’s Board of Directors! Application deadline extended to January 6.

2) Apply to join the RTA’s Citizens Advisory Committee (Sorry, deadline passed!)

3) Donate to Support Transit Advocacy

As you give thanks this holiday season, think about how you can best give back. Then get involved with Detroit transit advocacy!!

RTA CAC Recommends Changes in Woodward Rapid Transit

Southeast Michigan has a recommended plan for how to build rapid transit on the full 27 mile length of Woodward Avenue! If built, this Bus-Rapid Transit would provide frequent, attractive service to many major destinations along this essential corridor.

Although much of the proposed Woodward BRT follows best-practices of running in dedicated lanes, as currently proposed, the BRT would move off Woodward through midtown Detroit and potentially sharing traffic lanes on Cass and John R instead.

The RTA’s Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) recommends “a Mainline / All-Woodward alignment between Grand Boulevard and Grand Circus Park, running in a dedicated facility.”

RTA accepting applications for Citizens’ Advisory Committee

The RTA is accepting applications for the Citizens’ Advisory Committee now through Nov 17.

“The purpose of the CAC is to advise the RTA on transit issues, make suggestions for improvements in transit service, and advocate for greater funding for public transportation.”

To ensure diversity and meet statutory requirements, the CAC is especially seeking residents of Macomb County, users of public transportation, senior citizens and people with disabilities, and individuals representing business, labor, community, and faith-based organizations.
