Transit Equity Day
February 4, 2019 at 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bus Riders Unite are celebrating Transit Equity Day on Monday, February 4th: it’s the birthday of Civil Rights icon Rosa Parks! Bus Riders Unite members are pushing for a return of the Rider Advocate program on TriMet, to make the system safer for people of color who depend on it. You’re invited to be a part of this occasion and help us build rider power!
In order to participate, we ask you to prepare at the February 2nd De-escalation Training. We will be offering a deescalation training on Saturday, Feb 2nd as part of our campaign to win a Rider Advocate Program. Bus riders will meet up, train, and get on to the buses to promote community safety, learn about the issues our communities are facing in public transportation and, ensure our community knows about important services like the Low Income Fare.
