BTRU General Meeting

March 30, 2021 @ 6:00 pm EDT

On zoom. To share the facts, stories, and plans to turn the ship around.

Bus riders have sacrificed enough through this pandemic with multiple rounds of cuts–the last one being only a week before Congress gave NFTA-Metro another relief grant–this one amounting to $79 million. We demanded federal grants to offset the loss of fares city buses and trains when the pandemic unfolded, and now we demand a plan for restoring service cuts that balanced the budgets of local and state governments at the expense of people with the fewest options of getting around!
We are asking NFTA Metro to hold at least one public meeting when any new cut to one or more bus routes is proposed in the future.
NFTA-Metro is also proposing to make changes to is Service Design Guidelines & Delivery Standards, and we’re calling on them to press pause on its scheduled adoption, March 25th, so staff and decision makers can meet with riders concerned on what the changes in the 49-page document will mean for the future of bus service.
Take 45 seconds and join our letter campaign in the link below.
This virtual meeting is scheduled for the Tuesday after NFTA Board of Commissioners meet for their monthly meeting. We hope to have a clearer picture on what the future of bus service has in store following the meeting and what riders like us must do! Zoom link information is below.
