“Impossible!” you say.
But not so fast… This month the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) General Assembly is holding a series of public meetings on the possibility of an Ann Arbor-Detroit rapid transit system. The project is still in the planning stages, and support from the public is esssential.
The route is yet to be decided, but one thing that’s nearly certain is that it would have a stop at Metro airport (yay!) before going to Detroit. Just imagine—this could mean the end of the need for airport karma! It could also mean the possibility of going to a Tigers’ game or the Fox Theater without fighting traffic and circling for parking. It could save millions of gallons of gasoline consumed each year by commuters who have no other way of getting to work.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the line would provide a key opportunity for low-income Detroiters who have no way of getting out to potential jobs, which are mostly in the burbs. So, please consider attending one of the meetings planned for this month (see below) to show your support, ask questions, make suggestions, etc.
