What is Bus Riders Unite?
Bus Riders Unite (BRU) is the Portland Metro region's transit union, dedicated to advancing better public transportation for all! Those of us who ride transit know the issues that we confront on a daily basis, and how to solve them. By uniting around issues such as
- Safety and de-militarization
- Affordability and access
- Anti-discrimination and unfair targeting of BIPOC & low-income communities
- Updated infrastructure
- Increased service and routes
- Real community engagement
and other environmental justice and civil rights issues, we come together to create change. We organize our community by talking to other riders about joining our campaigns and by getting training on how to move our communities forward.
You can join us by checking out our monthly online BRU meetings! Just email our BRU Community Organizer Maia Vásconez-Taylor at [email protected].
