The 3-mile QLINE streetcar, a $140 million project that duplicates existing bus service, is opening May 12 to a planned celebration by “local officials and dignitaries.” Meanwhile, thousands of us are stranded by the lack of adequate transit service in the city of Detroit and the suburbs. We can’t let the region’s politicians continue to evade responsibility for taking action for real regional transit. We need to send a message that we will hold them accountable for taking steps to improve transit: most importantly, by placing another regional transit measure on the ballot for voters to approve in 2018, and putting their full support behind that proposal. Join us in a rally for real regional transit that addresses the needs of bus riders and the broader public, not just the profit margins of developers. Together, we can make our voices heard and put our city and region on the path to a better future. https://www.facebook.com/events/1587595071268504/

The 3-mile QLINE streetcar, a $140 million project that duplicates existing bus service, is opening May 12 to a planned celebration by “local officials and dignitaries.” Meanwhile, those same officials and dignitaries continue to do nothing about the ongoing transportation crisis in our region, as thousands of us are stranded by the lack of adequate transit service in the city of Detroit and the suburbs. We can’t let the region’s rich and powerful continue to evade responsibility for taking action for real regional transit. We need to send a message that we will hold them accountable for taking steps to improve transit: most importantly, by placing another regional transit measure on the ballot for voters to approve in 2018, and putting their full support behind that proposal. Join us in a rally for real regional transit that addresses the needs of bus riders and the broader public, not just the profit margins of developers. Stay tuned for details on the rally time and schedule.
