Urgent Strategy for Great Transit!

What’s next for regional transit? We’ve got a three-part strategy:

1) TRU members and allies seem to agree that a full four-county region-wide transit investment would be best. We need people from outer suburbs to be vocal supporters to counter the misperception that their communities don’t want transit!

2) If 4-county transit isn’t possible, Wayne and Washtenaw Counties would be better making major transit investments connecting their communities. Thank leaders from Detroit, Wayne, and Washtenaw Counties and urge them to make a regional transit investment happen this year!

3) TRU is also working to make sure whatever goes back on the ballot has broad voter support. Help us educate people with no transit experience about the benefits of transit while listening to their ideas and concerns, through our Let’s Talk Transit community engagement program.
