Operating and Capital Expenses - Suburban / SMART
page 6

The complete coordination of bus schedules and division of routes with shared transfer points maximizes the use of limited funds.

City and Suburban bus systems are to remain separate as mandatory with State to pay for coordination and operating costs as defined by the region of Michigan with existing regional transit operating tax (State CTF).

The backbone is to be contracted out to SMART with additional State CTF fund to be separate from other tax mechanisms and local funds. The ridership along routes is to determine the amount of funds each provider gets with the highest costs ones to be compensated for based on needs and federal disability requirements.
