Our Transit Justice Priorities

OPAL, Bus Riders Unite!, and our Fellows are here to make sure that TriMet works for the community. In the past few years, we've grown increasingly concerned with the decision-making that oversees the system. Because of the recent turmoil at TriMet, we've decided to put forth a comprehensive platform which reflects bus rider priorities. This platform is current as of March 13th, 2018.
