My kids and I live in the Detroit area. Their grandparents live in Ann Arbor. So many times I've wished for a transit option between the two!!!
How about you, Supporter? Want good transit connection between Detroit and Ann Arbor, as well as to metro Airport, Dearborn, Westland, Ypsilanti and other points in between?
Then don't miss the Regional Transit Authority's public meetings regarding rapid transit along the Michigan Avenue corridor!
This Thursday, Oct 8, 4-7pm in Ypsilanti
Next Monday, Oct 12, 4-7pm in Wayne
At the Wayne Historical Museum, 1 Towne Square Street, Wayne, MI, just off Michigan Ave, appx. 3 miles due north of Metro Airport
Next Tuesday, Oct 13, 4-7pm in Dearborn
