Transit Push Coming For Metro Tax

Another attempt to get taxpayers to support expanded public transit is being organized in Metro Detroit.
Previous efforts have flopped.
A ballot proposal will ask voters in Wayne, Oakland, and Washtenaw counties to approve a tax hike.
The plan would pay for an expansion of current transit authorities, like D-DOT, SMART and the Ann Arbor Transit Authority. Wayne County executive Warren Evans says better public transportation would boost the local economy and keep younger people from moving away, in a brain drain.

The plan does not currently include Macomb County, which rejected a similar plan in 2016.
