What are the RTA Transit Diaries?
This public forum is meant to showcase the heartwarming, fun and sometimes quirky stories of our invaluable transit riders. The transit community is unique and diverse, with varying experiences that others are sure to relate to. It is our hope that by reading and contributing to the Transit Diaries, users and non-users will feel welcomed and excited to utilize public transportation. The Transit Diaries platform is not intended to be used as an alternative to voice complaints, but rather an opportunity to share positive experiences that can be spread to the Southeastern Michigan community as a whole.
