Attention Ann Arborites (and others in Washtenaw County): 
 
Interested in bringing quality rapid transit to southeast Michigan?  
Want to help push for commuter trains from Ann Arbor and Ypsi to Detroit, metro Airport, Chelsea, and Livingston County?  
Curious about the latest findings from SEMCOG on the Ann Arbor to Detroit rapid transit project?   
 
Talk transit with TRU in Ann Arbor next Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 7pm in Ann Arbor's downtown library.
 
Eli Cooper, Transportation Program Manager for the City of Ann Arbor, will discuss Ann Arbor's efforts for rapid transit.  
TRU Director Megan Owens will discuss regional transit issues, the proposed Ann Arbor-Detroit commuter train, SEMCOG's upcoming public meeting on that issue, and opportunities to get involved.  
Q&A and discussion will follow.  

Tuesday, November 28th.  7 p.m.  
Ann Arbor District Library Freespace (third floor), 343 S. Fifth Ave., at William.
This event is Free!
 
Please forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested.  Thanks!
 
This event is the first in a series of TRU meetings and house parties throughout the region to discuss how regional transit issues intersect with local transit interests, and opportunities to join TRU's efforts to bring quality regional rapid transit to the greater Detroit region.  Additional events are planned over the next two months in Grosse Pointe, Farmington Hills, midtown Detroit and Royal Oak - more information on those will be announced soon.   
 
The event is not affiliated with the public meeting planned by the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) in Ann Arbor on Monday, Dec. 4, from 4:30 to 8pm at WCC.  At that meeting, SEMCOG will provide just released information about their Ann Arbor to Detroit Rapid Transit study.  More information at www.SEMCOG.org.
