Exciting series of transit events in 2019

TRU is hosting an exciting series of events that build on two decades of experience to engage supporters and to bring transit leaders together in support of great transit.

1) The State of Transit: TRU Annual Meeting & Regional Transit Awards

This biggest night in Detroit area transit brings top transit agencies leaders together with over transit riders, employees, business supporters, and advocates to explore The State of the Detroit Region’s Transit. Mark your calendar now for Thursday evening January 31, 2019 at TechTown Detroit.

2) Business Breakfast Workshop on Encouraging Transit Ridership

Expensive parking is motivating many employees to seek more affordable and less stressful commute options. This engaging spring workshop will bring together business, organization, and municipal leaders to learn effective tools to enable and encourage employees to ride transit.

3) New Mobility & Transit Forum: Policy and Advocacy 

Building on our popular November 2018 event, this forum will explore policy opportunities for ensuring New Mobility services provide the broadest benefit throughout the Detroit region. Tentatively planned for September 2019.


Those three big events are joined by two other TRU series:

4) Let’s Talk Transit Peer-to-Peer Community Engagement Program 

Among the most critical of TRU’s efforts, this program provides presentations to and discussions with dozens of community groups region-wide, boosting transit knowledge, increasing public support, and expanding public involvement in transit decision-making.

5) Transit on Tap Series

Sometimes the best ideas come from casual discussions. This quarterly series brings together the growing diversity of transit supporters for informal discussion of hot transit topics, building community and possibly inspiring the next great transit solution.

Note – event subjects and other details are subject to modification to best meet timely transit goals.
