Community Economic Development Center of SE MA

The goal of Bus Riders United (BRU) is to address transit inequality by organizing bus riders and the community and improve local bus service in Southeastern Massachusetts. We have built a strong community-labor coalition, and most importantly have organized bus riders to successfully restore service in the RTA region that serves two cities, New Bedford and Fall River, Massachusetts and 8 towns with a total population of 308,614. BRU was instrumental is restoring and then extending night service., bringing back Monday Holiday service, fare restructuring and greater transparency to SRTA through bus rider representation. However, we still do not have Sunday bus service and we have heard loud and clear from bus riders that life doesn’t stop on Sundays.
