It's Time for a Wayne-Washtenaw Transit Plan

Date: 
Wed, Feb 21, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

City:

With each passing week, the future of a four-county RTA proposal seems bleaker and bleaker. The missed deadline for an agreement among the Big Four this January and L. Brooks Patterson's unequivocal rejection of a regional transit plan in his State of the County address are not encouraging. While we will keep organizing north of 8 Mile and fighting for a transit system for the entire region, it is time to put plan B—a regional transit proposal between Wayne and Washtenaw Counties—into motion.
