Celebrate LIFE with BRU on Saturday!

BRU-Logo-HD-colorOur community is invited to join Bus Riders Unite for a celebration of our victories in the Low Income Fare Equity (LIFE) campaign. We successfully won an agreement from TriMet to implement a fare reduction for low income people! Bus Riders Unite won the funding for this program by advocating for it through the transportation package that passed the Oregon Legislature earlier this year. You are invited to our celebration, to meet other bus riders and to hear more about the next stages of work in ensuring our transit system better serves everyone who rides and drives our buses and trains.

The event will take place at the OPAL office, from 2 to 5 pm. We’ll have a brief program at 3:00, and then at 4:00 will prepare art for a solidarity action later in the evening.

This is a family-friendly event. Childcare will be available. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be served, and we’ll toast a glass of champagne at 3:30.

Let us know you’re coming! RSVP to Orlando by emailing orlando@opalpdx.org or calling 503 774 4504
