On Nov. 8, 2022, voters will be asked to consider a 10-year, .95 mill measure to maintain and expand public transit services, connecting people and communities across Oakland County.

What is Oakland Transit?

  • The Oakland Transit millage will expand and maintain existing public transit services, including transportation provided by the SMART bus system, Western Oakland Transportation Authority, North Oakland Transportation Authority and Older Persons Commission in the Rochester area.
  • The millage funds new service to key areas, including major employment centers, health care campuses and local colleges and universities.
  • The millage will expand reservation-based service – flexible transportation for seniors, people with disabilities, and veterans who need to make essential trips, such as doctor’s appointments and grocery shopping.
  • The millage will expand app-based service – on-demand transportation open to the general public, using small vehicles.
  • Funds from the millage will support transit services that specifically benefit Oakland County residents and businesses.
  • Local service details will be developed collaboratively with members of the public, community organizations, transit providers, local governments and county leadership.
