DETROIT (AP) - Public meetings are taking place as part of an effort to improve regional transit options in the Detroit area.

MLive.com reports (https://bit.ly/1V0jktK ) one Regional Transit Authority meeting is Tuesday at the Aloft Detroit hotel. Other meetings are planned Wednesday in Mount Clemens, Thursday in Ann Arbor and Saturday in Pontiac.

In a statement, organizers say “various modes of transit and how they intersect” will be on display.

Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation in December 2012 creating the authority for Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw counties. In 2014, the Regional Transit Authority decided to delay proposing a millage to support the effort until this fall.

Regional differences, such as running separate bus services in Detroit and the surrounding region, have made it difficult to get existing bus systems to work together.
