DDOT Announces New App to Track Buses

Mayor Duggan and DDOT Director Dirks held a press conference Thursday to announce the arrival of new DDOT buses and a new mobile “DDOT bus” ap.

They showed off the first of 80 new buses scheduled to be delivered this year; the first seven of which will hit the streets in the next two weeks.

They also unveiled a new “DDOT Bus App” mobile app which provides riders who have smart phones the real-time location, movement and arrival time of the next bus at their stop.

A Significant Win on Transit Funding!

The Michigan legislature passed a major package of bills to fund transportation and more, including $112 million for transit!

However, for the funding to be enacted, Michigan voters must decide in May 2015 to raise Michigan’s sales tax to 7% from its current 6%.

Thank you so much if you were one of the thousands of people who called, emailed, and visited your legislators to urge their support for transit!!

Transit Funding: Invest in Success or On the Chopping Block?

Michigan Leaders will decide in the next few days whether to support or to gut Michigan’s transportation funding!

ACT NOW: Tell legislators and Governor Snyder that Michigan needs a full range of reliable transportation choices. CALL TODAY and/or use our easy online tool to email your legislators.
