Yes, another fantasy map of regional transit in Detroit comes from John Good, who grew up near Detroit.
This time, as opposed to truly dreaming about what Detroit transit could be as we saw in the Jackson Woods’ Detroit Metro Transit map, John builds on the work that is currently being done to upgrade and improve regional transit such as: the M-1 LRT along Woodward Ave., tri-county BRT route between Macmob County, and other pieces from the 2008 “Detroit Regional Mass Transit” (PDF) plan from SEMCOG.
Two immediate thoughts:
- Why stop the route yellow line at the Airport? The commuter rail plan is to extend to Ann Arbor and reach the Detroit Amtrak station (not Campus Martius).
- Where is the connector between The Villages and Grosse Pointe?
