As the next SMART board meeting approaches (Thurs., Sept. 25, Buhl Building – fifth floor, 535 Griswold, Detroit), we think it’s important to lay out exactly why we’re so passionate about restoring the city-suburb service we lost in 2011. Most people in the metro region don’t know about the 2011 SMART cuts, and what a blow they were to folks trying to get around via transit. We need to change this. Below, you’ll find our effort at a summary of the situation. We look forward to seeing you next Thursday!
