Wayne County Executive Warren Evans has unveiled his proposal to create a coordinated, connected regional transit system through the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan (RTA).
The goal is to put another millage proposal in front of voters in 2018 to pay for the system.

From reporter Chad Livengood in Crain’s Detroit Business ahead of Evans’ presentation on Thursday:
Wayne County Executive Warren Evans plans to present a new mass transportation plan Thursday to the four-county Regional Transit Authority board in a last-ditch effort to get a plan before voters this fall.
In his annual State of the County address on Tuesday evening, Evans said the revised transit plan he’s been working on with regional leaders for nearly a year will be “bigger, better and more flexible” than the $3 billion, 20-year transit plan and 1.2-mill property tax that voters narrowly rejected in 2016.
