Washtenaw: Transit

The Detroit News reports that legislation for a metro Detroit regional transit authority covering Detroit and four counties, including Washtenaw, is seeing new signs of life in the state House of Representatives. The bill would allow for creation of a rapid transit bus system, which would include routes between Ann Arbor and Detroit. From the report: “One point of contention is the governance of the authority. … State Rep. Doug Geiss, D-Taylor, said suburban Wayne County should have two sole votes and proposed giving one of Washtenaw County’s votes to Detroit to equalize city-suburban representation.” [Source]
