Join Michigan Radio for Issues & Ale – Regional Transit


Wed, May 9, 6:30 - 8 p.m.

Fillmore 13 Brewery
7 N. Saginaw St
Pontiac, MI 48342

Transit in Southeast Michigan has again surfaced as a major issue as area leaders have been unable to agree on a regional transit plan. Should Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw counties all work together to develop rapid bus transit lines and commuter rail, or should car dependent areas focus on maintaining or expanding their network of roads?

Join Jack Lessenberry us as he talks with local experts about the future of regional transit.

Expected panelists:

Chastity Pratt Dawsey - Bridge Magazine Reporter;
Leon Drolet - Macomb County Commissioner;
Paul Hillegonds - Regional Transit Authority Chair;
Megan Owens - Transportation Riders United Executive Director
