 <http://peoplestransit.org/?p=22> Frustrated with your transit experience?

Tired of slow, unreliable public transportation? Feel like nobody at Metro /
Sound Transit cares about your rider experience?

You're not alone.

The Transit Riders Union is helping to unite riders and give them a voice
that will be listened to.

We are fighting to improve our transit system, specifically:

Passenger amenities (shelters, maps, schedules, cleanliness, etc.)
Service reliability and efficiency	
Keeping fares low and fighting unfair service cuts	 Transit information
and communication	
Safety and security at stops and aboard buses	 Transit equity (ensure all
riders in all areas are well-served)	
Transit agency transparency
