The RTA and DDOT both want to hear from you, Supporter!
The RTA is working to address one of the biggest gaps in southeast Michigan's transit: the complete lack of rapid transit throughout our region. Planning is underway for Bus Rapid Transit on Woodward, Gratiot and Michigan Avenues and for regional commuter rail from Detroit to Ann Arbor.
You're invited to a series of public open house meetings to learn the latest plans, ask questions, and share your ideas and concerns:
- Tuesday March 29, 4:00 - 7:00 pm
- At Aloft Detroit at the David Whitney building, 1 Park Avenue in downtown Detroit
- Wednesday, March 30, 4:00 - 7:00 pm
- At The Collaborative: 21 N. Main Street, in downtown Mt Clemens
- Thursday, March 31, 4:00 - 7:00 pm
- At Shinola Ann Arbor, 301 S. Main Street, in downtown Ann Arbor
- Saturday, April 2, 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
- At The Crofoot Ballroom, 1 S. Saginaw Street in downtown Pontiac
Note: All events are open house style, so you can stop by anytime within the posted hours. The information presented at each meeting will be largely the same (although with varying emphasis), so attend the one that is most convenient for you.
RSVPs are requested, but not required. All are welcome, so bring friends!
At each, RTA staff and consultants will tell you about proposed station locations, show you what a stop could look like and more. Oh and they're promising appetizers and drinks too!
For more information, special needs, or an accessibility information, call 313-402-1020.
Also, DDOT is holding a series of Community Input Workshops throughout Detroit, in partnership with Detroit's District Offices. DDOT invites you to come meet the people who create your bus service.
"It's time to roll up your sleeves and join us for a working meeting. Help us make the changes that matter most to you!"
- Tuesday, April 5, from 6:00 - 7:30 pm
- At the Northwest Activities Center, 18100 Meyers Road, Detroit
- Co-hosted by the Mayor's District 2 Office
- Wednesday, April 13, 6:00 - 7:30 pm
- At Patton Recreation Center, 2301 Woodmere St, Detroit, 48209

RVSPs are requested at 313-833-7761.
DDOT notes that these Community Input Workshops are casual events to discuss ideas. In addition to these workshops, DDOT will continue to hold formal public hearings for any specific service change proposals.
