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!!

Donate Today to Support Detroit Transit in 2015

Please make a year-end donation to TRU to support our work for reliable, affordable transit for everyone in 2015!

Because you understand that not everyone can drive, and not everyone wants to;

Because you believe every person deserves the chance to get ahead by having a way to get around;

Because you’ve ridden transit in other big cities, enjoyed the vibrant urban neighborhoods around transit stops, and dream of Detroit enjoying the same.

TRU is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so your donation is tax deductible. Please donate today!
