Tell Us Your Story

Sunday, May 11, 2015 kicks off National Transportation Week.  This year we are using Transportation Week to show that RMTD is part of the solution.  We are asking that all of our loyal riders go to our Facebook page and share their story on how and why they ride RMTD.  Not on Facebook?  No worries.  You can fill out the story form available at our East Side Transfer Center.

It is our intention to gather all of these stories and send them on to our Governor and other State lawmakers showing the importance of public transportation and asking that our funding from the State remain intact.

Don’t forget to sign the petition too.  We need to have our voices heard.  RMTD Is Important in people’s lives.  RMTD is part of the solution, not the problem
