is a different approach to transit.

And it's a very simple approach, at that. Metro Detroit won't suddenly sprout a good transit system because powerful people say so. The most admired, most effective transit systems take shape from the ground up – not from the top down.

We acknowledge that transit has a low profile in our metropolitan area. With that as the starting point, movement toward a better system will be gradual. But it shouldn't be piecemeal. Overcoming the challenge will require vision, integration and a lot of small victories.
