The Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan plans to engage the southeast Michigan community to gather their feedback and opinions on regional transit.

“Creating opportunities to engage the community is a crucial step in deciding the next steps for regional transit in Southeast Michigan,” said RTA Board of Directors Chair Paul Hillegonds. “Our regional community members are the most important stakeholder in this process and gathering their input is invaluable. We want to hear from as many people as possible.”
