RFP: Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan Corridor Planning Study

The Regional Transit Authority (RTA) of Southeast Michigan was formed with the purpose of coordinating services of the existing transit systems (DDOT, DTC, SMART, and AAATA) and conducting corridor planning studies to enhance public transportation options in the region. The RTA will study the four major corridors within their service area covering Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and Washtenaw counties and the City of Detroit.

The planning studies will evaluate transit alternatives, phasing and associated costs of alternatives. The goal is to explore how to improve transit in the corridor, improve regional mobility, increase travel options and destination choices, and promote transit-oriented development (TOD) along the corridor. The studies will evaluate enhancing existing bus service, adding higher level transit along with a number of alignment options. The purpose of the studies is to identify a financially feasible project to advance into the FTA project development.
