Livejournal user declanmcmanus has started an lj community detroit_transit for coordinating advocacy of light rail and other mass transit in Detroit. From the introductory post:

I figure after this past election, it’s time for me to get active about some issues locally that I care about, and try to make the world a better place on a smaller scale.

So, here’s the premise: Southeastern Michigan has no mass comprehensive mass transit system, other than a loose network of bus systems which are inefficient, dirty, and not at all comprehensive.

I think it’s time to change that. I think it’s time Detroit joined other major metropolitan areas and had it’s own light rail transit system. I am starting this journal community to encourage debate and discussion, and maybe even some progress towards making a Detroit/Southeastern Michigan Transit System a reality.

If not me, who? If not now, When?

You’re all invited, of course.

Thanks to George Hotelling for the link.
