Give Thanks. Give Back. Get Involved!

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!!
