TRU is excited to welcome a new member to the TRU family – Kristen Milefchik! While working on her Masters of Social Work at Wayne State University, Kristen will help lead our Let’s Talk Transit peer-to-peer community engagement program, among other projects.
A lifelong advocate for the rights of people with disabilities, Kristen helped launch the Vote Yes for Regional Transit campaign last year.
We’re excited to have Kristen join the TRU family!
A huge thank you to Michael Ford and to everyone who came to TRU’s fall meeting November 10 to see him!
It was a great opportunity to hear about Michael’s goals and plans as well as to catch up with old friends and to make new ones.

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.
