R-PATH is Regional Partners Advocating Transit Here — a voluntary, bi-partisan group of elected officials representing the legislative bodies of the City of Detroit and the county’s of Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne.
Our mission is to communicate a unified message of support for the development of a Regional Transit Authority in Southeast MI.
R-PATH also functions as a sounding board for constituents and a fact-finding group to inform citizens and give them the right to decide for themselves whether they want an RTA. R-PATH will gather data on RTA models and best practices to share with county executives, mayors and the public.
The group has met monthly since October 2011 to set goals and benchmark its progress. R-PATH members are planning a number of public hearings, informational meetings, and fact-finding trips.
The R-PATH website, Facebook page and Twitter account will help you keep informed and engaged in the discussion about the benefits and impact of a Regional Transit Authority for Southeast Michigan.
