What is the state of Metro Detroit’s transit system? Where do we go from here? Will there be a ballot proposal in 2018? What about universal fare cards? What improvements have been made?

That was all covered at the Transit Riders United Annual Meeting which had a program about the State of Transit.

There are a lot of questions around something that’s pretty critical topic to address for the future of the City of Detroit and the region. We don’t have all the answers, but Sven’s guests do share with us what is happening now.

  • Paul Hillegonds, Chair and Governor Representative of the Regional Transit Authority
  • Rob Cramer, Deputy General Manager, SMART

and then

  • Dave Gifford, Transit Advocate and winner of the 2017 Transit Riders United Activist of the Year Award
