DETROIT (WKZO) -- The newly formed Michigan Regional Transit Authority met Wednesday for the first time.

At the top of the to-do-list for the group is modernizing public transportation and making it more efficient.  The group also has a goal of coordinating the efforts of the Detroit Department of Transportation and the suburban SMART system.

The RTA plans on asking regional voters to approve a transit tax.  That money is expected to pay for better bus service and, maybe, more passenger rail service.
