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.
For regional transit trips that stretch across bus system service areas in Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw, and Wayne Counties, you can get transit and walking directions from Google Transit.
Note: Google Transit provides directions for AAATA, DDOT, SMART, and the University of Michigan Transportation Services. Google Transit does not include schedule information for the Detroit People Mover at this time. The RTA is not responsible or liable for the accuracy of any information provided by Google Maps and does not validate any trip planning information provided.
