Providers Advisory Committee

The Regional Transit Authority at 2 Years Old

It was 2 years ago that TRU, MOSES and other partners welcomed the first meeting of the RTA Board of Directors with a birthday card, balloons, cake, and high expectations. It’s taken a while, but the RTA is now starting to really take off:
– The RTA is now fully staffed with a new Outreach Manager and Planning Director.
– The RTA staff is attending numerous community events throughout the region to learn what the public wants.
– Starting mid-May, the RTA will be launching a major public outreach and engagement effort.
– The Providers and Citizens Advisory Committees have been hard at work.
– And RTA staff is working to provide on-the-ground transit improvements within the next year.

Stay tuned for LOTS more information.

Great TRU Spring Meeting on Transit Service and Coordination

Thanks so much to DDOT, SMART, M-1 RAIL, Detroit People Mover, and AAATA The Ride for presenting at TRU’s Spring Meeting April 3! All provided great updates on service improvements, funding challenges, coordination efforts, and plans for the future.

Presenters participated in a Q&A led by Ruth Johnson, during which riders were encouraged to call in complaints with specific details on times and routes so management can know what’s going on and take action to make improvements.
