Urge Your Friends to Sign Our Transit Bill of Rights!
For far too long, the people of greater Detroit have suffered from insufficient quantity and quality of transit service, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without reliable access to jobs, job training, and other necessities. We demand better. DDOT, SMART, the People Mover, and any new transit service provider must meet a higher standard of service.
So TRU created a new Transit Bill of Rights declaring our right to:
- Reliable, on-time service
- Full accessibility
- Safe, clean, well-lit and well-maintained vehicles and facilities
- Public involvement in transit decision-making
- and much more
With help from TRU’s interns and volunteers, our allies and partners, and advocates like you, we plan to get over 3,000 people signed onto this statement of rights. We’ve got 1,000 so far, but still need your help!
Make sure to urge your friends to do the same!!
This fall, we will present these signatures to transit agencies and decision makers to express our demands and press them for action to achieve these rights for all who use and benefit from transit in Southeast Michigan. Thanks for helping us demonstrate the broad will of the region to demand better transit!
