Donate Today to Support Detroit Transit in 2015

Please make a year-end donation to TRU to support our work for reliable, affordable transit for everyone in 2015!

Because you understand that not everyone can drive, and not everyone wants to;

Because you believe every person deserves the chance to get ahead by having a way to get around;

Because you’ve ridden transit in other big cities, enjoyed the vibrant urban neighborhoods around transit stops, and dream of Detroit enjoying the same.

TRU is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so your donation is tax deductible. Please donate today!
