December 3, 2013 – Today is the first of six meetings to get public reaction and input on the various alternatives being studied for higher level transit on Woodward Avenue from Pontiac to Detroit.
What roads will Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) travel on? How long will it take to travel between downtown Detroit and Pontiac? How will BRT operate with existing DDOT and SMART service and future M1 Streetcar? How many riders are projected to use BRT? These are some of the questions we hope to discuss as the study begins to come to its conclusion.
Bus Rapid Transit would look a little different... Come to a meeting to learn more.
The six meetings are all open to the public and will be held in several Woodward Avenue communities during the first two weeks in December.
