The Regional Transportation Authority of Southeast Michigan meets today.
The authority is expected to take a preliminary vote at the meeting on whether it will move ahead with a revamped proposal for regional public mass transit.
If it passes at today’s meeting, a follow up vote would then be taken next week during a special meeting to put it on the November ballot.
The so-called Connect Southeast Michigan plan is a 20-year, 5.4 billion dollar proposal that calls for new rapid transit bus service along 15 high-traffic corridors, express routes and an Ann Arbor to Detroit commuter rail line. It would include a tax increase proposal for the 4-county area.
