RTA Regional Transit Master Plan Community Virtual Open Houses: Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan.

  community member   < less

The Advance 2021 Regional Master Transit Plan will be developed through fall 2021, starting with the broad perspective of how we want to shape transit in Southeast Michigan for the next five, 10 and 20 years.
The Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan (RTA) is hosting a series of virtual open houses as a key part of the effort to update the Regional Master Transit Plan (RMTP) over the next five years and beyond.
The goal of the Advance 2021 conversations is to:
- Help the RTA hear from our customers, riders and residents about how they feel about our transit systems.
- Provide the public with an opportunity to share their view on how the RTA can improve.
- Learn from the residents of Southeast Michigan what they would like to see as it relates to regional transit and the RTA moving forward.
