    The Regional Transit Authority for Southeast Michigan (RTA)  has completed its appointments to the Citizens Advisory Council (CAC), and 8MBA Executive Director Tami Salisbury was selected to serve alongside 29 other leaders throughout the region.


    The purpose of the CAC is to advise the RTA on transit issues, make suggestions for improvements in transit service and to advocate for greater funding for public transportation. CAC members can review and comment on all transit service and coordination plans, as well as provide specific recommendations for those plans or to address any other matters concerning public transit in the region. 


    8MBA's presence on the CAC will help ensure that Eight Mile and the communities along it will have a voice in shaping the region's future public transit system.
