Vote “Yes” on the public transportation millage
to maintain, improve and expand services. Help our most vulnerable residents in Oakland County get to where they need to go!
Helping our neighbors
Voting “Yes” for the Oakland County Public Transportation millage helps vulnerable members of our community get to and from work, school, doctors’ appointments and the grocery store. Thousands of seniors, veterans and people with disabilities in Oakland County rely on SMART (Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation) services, the North Oakland Transportation Authority (NOTA), Older Persons’ Commission (OPC) and the Western Oakland Transportation Authority (WOTA) because they can no longer drive or afford a car.
Boosting our Economy
Public transportation helps connect doctors with patients, employers with employees and businesses with customers. Research shows public transportation is a vital component of thriving communities with every $1 invested in public transportation creating $4 in economic output by attracting new businesses and expanding the talent pool for local employers.
Affordable, Accountable and Transparent
Voting “Yes” will cost the average Oakland County homeowner just $9 per month to keep public transportation available for seniors, veterans, low-income residents and people with disabilities. Every dollar spent is tracked publicly online to ensure taxpayer dollars are spent wisely and transparently, and 100% of the funds stay in Oakland County. This is a local, Oakland County solution to public transportation and is supported by elected leaders, community groups and business groups.
