Axios Detroit: Metro Detroit public transit voting guide

Voters throughout the region will see transit tax proposals on the Nov. 8 ballot.

Why it matters: Passage of the proposals is crucial to continued and expanded bus service throughout metro Detroit.

What’s happening: The Oakland County measure stands out. It would close gaps in service in places like Novi and Rochester, which affect riders traveling from Detroit, often for work.

What they’re saying: “Even if you’re not right next to a fixed route, there are going to be increased services throughout the county under this proposal that would affect you,” Oakland County Executive David Coulter said last week at a transit panel.
