The RTA was scheduled to vote Thursday July 21 to adopt the Regional Transit Master Plan and place the funding on the November 8 ballot. Unfortunately, objections from Oakland and Macomb board members have delayed that vote.
Delay is risky because if the RTA does not vote by August 15 with an affirmative vote from every county, funding cannot be placed on the November ballot and the region would have to wait at least two more years.
RTA staff are working diligently to address their concerns. The board is tentatively scheduled to meet again July 28.
