Share Your Transit Impact Story!
Transportation Riders United is gathering personal stories about how public transit impacts people’s everyday lives, so that we can more effectively persuade the region that transit is worth investing in.
Real life experiences are powerful. Your story may be crucial in demonstrating the need and building support for expanded transit. Please be as specific and descriptive as you can.
We may use these stories on our website and social media, with area media and elected officials, and in our mailings, newsletters, and fundraising materials, and elsewhere. By checking the below permissions, you allow us to share your story.
Depending on how much detail you provide, this could take 3-10 minutes to complete. Thanks!!
