The Southeast Michigan Regional Transit Plan

Monday June 13, 2016: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Southeast Michigan's very first regional master transit plan will be released on May 31 to the public for review and comment and may be viewed (beginning on May 31) at rtamichigan.org.

Join us for this community forum to find out more and discuss the plan with the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan.

The Regional Master Transit Plan will be a transit vision for all of us. It will guide how we expand and improve transit in Southeast Michigan over the next twenty years. This includes improving bus service, coordinating existing transit providers (AAATA, DDOT, DTC, M-1 Rail, and SMART), and introducing rapid transit along major corridors throughout the region.
The plan will guide the development of a multi-modal transit system in Oakland, Macomb, Wayne, and Washtenaw Counties. It will examine existing transit service, recommend improvements, and provide a strategy to make the system a reality.

The Regional Master Transit Plan will:
• Examine the state of our current transit system and tell us will happen if nothing changes
• Determine the appropriate mix of transit service to meet the needs of Southeast Michigan
• Recommend future transit service, including new rapid transit and better coordination between the existing providers
• Lay out a realistic funding strategy and the steps needed to make this vision a reality
