Regional Transit Authority (RTA)
A Regional Transit Authority (RTA) was recently established for Southeast Michigan. The RTA is composed of the counties of Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw. It is governed by a 10-member board with two representatives from each of the participating counties, one representative from the City of Detroit, and one non-voting member appointed by the governor who acts as the chair.
