Fair Fares Campaign: Action at the DDOT Community Input Meeting

Date: 
Thu, May 16, 2019 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

City:

Since the fall, DDOT bus riders have been advocating for a reduced fare for low-income riders. In the ordinance raising fares on most bus riders, Detroit City Council called on DDOT to investigate the feasibility of a reduced low-income fare. Now, six months later, the fares have increased, but DDOT still has taken no action. We're turning out in force at the community input meeting to demand that they treat this as an urgent priority and begin conducting the feasibility study as soon as possible.
