Review for Transportation Riders United Inc, Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For over two years I've volunteered at various levels and have always been encouraged by the professionalism of the Board and staff members of TRU.
Whether obtaining signatures for "bus" or the light rail, speaking with Michigan Congressional Representatives everyone has a back story they want to share and thereby garning trust for what TRU is all about - Public Transportation is for everyone and we all at one time or another have need of the public service for the entire South Eastern portion of the State of Michigan - Remember we're not just providing service for one group but , for the entire web of cities, towns, villages that require transportation to manage their lives more effectively.
TRU donations may be volunteering, even from home, it may take on phone calls for donations, supporting auction sales, updating records at the office. Each volunteer has their own reasons and we strive to make each volunteer know how much the work they perform is critical for the overall success of TRU.
I'm proud to serve in any capacity for TRU because TRU does make a difference in our every day lives.
