Our hats are off to the legislature. Defying hyper-partisan stubbornness, the Senate, and then the House, approved bills to create a regional transit authority for Southeast Michigan, at long last. What are the next steps?
I wish officials in Detroit acknowledged that transit requires public investment and conversations should involve the public. I wish we had more realistic expectations for M-1 Rail and that we stopped waiting for the proposed RTA to solve all our problems.
