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.
The RTA is seeking qualified applicants to fill the following positions:

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, Detroit People Mover, and the University of Michigan Transportation Services. 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.

The RTA will eventually have their own Web site, but will use this page off of the SEMCOG Web site in the interim. All notices of meetings and other RTA Board information will be posted on both the SEMCOG and this RTA Web page.
