I Want to Keep SMART Rolling!

Every day, SMART buses take tens of thousands of our neighbors to jobs, schools, doctors, grocery stores and more. SMART helps seniors and people with disabilities stay independent and saves families money.

On August 5, voters in Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne Counties voted to keep the SMART millage. The 1.0 mil property tax will keep SMART rolling, replace aging buses, and potentially expand service.

     Background Info:

    This support statement has been prepared and gathered by nonprofit community groups including Transportation Riders United, the Southeast Michigan Sierra Club, and MOSES, independent of SMART. Signers will be provided with periodic information and reminders about the SMART millage vote and related transit issues. 

    On August 5, voters in Macomb County and parts of Oakland and Wayne Counties voted to support SMART and keep our economy moving.

    • The 1.0 mil property tax would cost the average homeowner $50 a year (for a house worth $100,000).

    • A yes vote will renew the longstanding millage, with a moderate increase to cover increasing costs - the first increase in 12 years.

    • After the measure's passage, SMART’s millage rate will continue to be lower than those in Lansing, Saginaw, Flint, Ann Arbor, Grant Rapids, and Kalamazoo.
