After years of planning and months of debating the final plan, southeast Michigan is finally voting on Tuesday whether or not to pass the Regional Transit Authority’s plan for a massive, cohesive transit plan in Wayne, Washtenaw, Oakland, and Macomb counties.
Is the plan perfect? No, but it’s a damn good start and it will help thousands of people around the region.
All of our coverage on the RTA, including plan details, can be found here.
Back in June, we asked readers what the biggest obstacle was in a plan like this, and in our poll, the overwhelming response was convincing the region that this is necessary.
Has the RTA done enough to convince the masses? Do people realize it’s not just a way to get to and from downtown? Will metro Detroit finally catch up with every other metro area in the country that has a solid transit system? Have y’all come to terms with the lack of rail in the plan?
