Public Review of SMART’s Proposed Service Plan

October 24, 2019 / Comments (0)


After an 18-month system analysis and outreach effort, SMART will present a proposed long-term plan for improvements to its public transportation services to the public.

As part of the SMART Path initiative, SMART has explored ways to maximize user benefit, optimize taxpayer dollars, and improve the efficiency of its suburban route network. Proposed solutions include expansion of SMART’s popular FAST routes, more direct routes, increased frequency and weekend service, and pilot projects using new technologies to connect people more effectively. Despite a national trend of declining ridership, SMART has increased ridership by 19% system-wide and 56% on the FAST corridors, since the launch of FAST.

Proposed plan details can be found at

SMART is seeking feedback from riders and the general public. To ensure that each community has ample opportunities for the public to participate, SMART is hosting seven meetings, two in each county and one in downtown Detroit. Comments can also be made online at, by email, or by mail:
