Crain’s Detroit Business: Commentary – Expanded Oakland County transit can connect businesses with workers

Public transportation is a vital service that connects doctors with patients, employers with employees and businesses with customers.

It also drives our economy in Oakland County and makes us more competitive by helping us attract new businesses.

That’s why I am urging residents to Vote “Yes” for the Oakland County Public Transportation Millage on the Nov. 8 ballot.

The Oakland County Transportation Proposal will support the SMART bus service as well as the North Oakland Transportation Authority, the Older Persons’ Commission and the Western Oakland Transportation Authority. It supports existing services and expands new transportation choices and options for all Oakland County residents.
