July 17: Help Us Decide Our Next Steps and Priorities

As OPAL and Bus Riders Unite celebrate our accomplishments from our organizing around the TriMet budget–including $1 million for a discount ticket program for low-income riders –we also need to start planning and strategizing our priorities for the coming months.

A lot of different ideas have been suggested, including a campaign for an elected or locally appointed TriMet board, as well as establishing a Transit Equity Committee made of transit-dependent riders to hold TriMet accountable. Please join us at our next membership meeting to share your thoughts about Bus Riders Unite’s next steps:

Bus Riders Unite Membership Meeting
Tuesday, July 17 (6pm-8pm)
OPAL Office, 2407 SE 49th Avenue (off Division),

Food, childcare, and Spanish translation will be provided. Food is served at 5:30pm, so please come early so you can get settled in. Please RSVP (hector@opalpdx.org) so we can plan accordingly and expect your participation.

This summer, we’ll be working with our awesome Summer Organizers-in-Training to do our East Portland Bus Stop Project. We want to hear your thoughts and ideas to keep Bus Riders Unite moving forward. Please join us Tuesday, July 17!
