Background:

The greater Detroit region does not have a great history of effective public involvement in transportation decisions. We’re working to change that!

The new Regional Transit AuthPublic meetingority will want to hear from you in 2015 on the best way to provide rapid transit on Gratiot and Michigan Ave along with overall plans and priorities for improving transit throughout the region.

We believe the best plans come from having the most voices involved and want you, your organization, and your neighbors to be prepared!
