Washtenaw: Transit

An editorial in the Detroit Free Press supports Gov. Rick Snyder’s proposal to create a regional transit authority that would oversee a 110-mile rapid transit bus system, funded by an increase in local vehicle registration fees. “The option of raising vehicle registration fees would be available to all counties or regional authorities seeking more money for transportation investments. Now it’s up to the leaders of Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw Counties to drive this plan home, while moving forward with a planned light rail line on Woodward and – perhaps most important – fixing the service crisis facing bus riders in Detroit and its suburbs.” [Source]
