The Green Room: Increasing Bus Ridership in the Ann Arbor-Ypsi Area
On May 6th, voters will decide a millage to fund expanded bus services in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Ypsilanti Township. While disagreeing on the question of a tax increase, both supporters and opponents support expanded services. Environmentalists say buses help communities achieve their climate action goals, and so increasing ridership is crucial. This month’s “Green Room” hears from a variety of local residents about what improvements they would like to see in our local bus system.
