Mark your calendar for the RTA meetings next week!

Please also support TRU's work to improve Detroit Transit!


What would you say Supporter is the single most important part a transit system for our region?

Is there one route that is vital to you? Or is 24-hour service what matters? Is travel to the airport your #1? Or is service for seniors most important?

The Regional Transit Authority is developing a Transit Action Plan that will shape our region’s transit development in the next few years and for decades to come.

They’ve got some ideas of the direction it should take:

Now they need to hear from you!

Come to one of the RTA Public Meetings next week (Oct 19-24) to have your say!

  • Monday, October 19, at the Wayne County Community College District, Downriver Campus, Taylor, 4 – 8 p.m.
  • Tuesday, October 20, at The Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority, Ann Arbor, 4 – 8 p.m.

Note: These are open house style meetings with the same content at each so stop by any of the meetings at any time. For more information or with special needs, call 313-402-1020.

For the past six months, the RTA has been listening to people throughout the region, meeting with transit stakeholders, studying our region’s needs, and evaluating past transit plans.They've asked what people want and, not surprisingly, we want transit to go everywhere, all the time, fast and cheap! Sadly, no transit system can do everything.

But the region has to set priorities and make some hard choices. That's why your input is especially important now!

Is their plan on the right track? What essentials are they missing?

What priorities or trade-offs are necessary? What is the most critical?

They’re on a fast track to creating a great transit plan that the people of this region want, need, and are willing to pay for. They plan to finalize the plan for their Board to approve by January and for voters to decide on funding next November.

Come help make it great!!
