What will happen to the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority?

The Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide) has built a robust local transit system due to the consistent support from the citizens of Ann Arbor and other local communities. TheRide will continue to run, expand, and improve local transit services. TheRide's local millages remain under full control of TheRide's board. As the RTA develops, there will be opportunities to increase regional coordination and develop regional services.
