Still slated for launch on August 27th.
This map illustrates what Downtown will look like when the DASH 3.0 is launched, including the enhanced RAPID#19 Michigan Crosstown as well as the LakerLine. Construction of the LakerLine begins later this year with service commencing in 2020. The combination of these route changes create a far more effective mesh of transit service for downtown.

EV Charging Stations
Electric charging stations where installed in 2011.
- 5 downtown (1 on-street)

This is a map of voter's support of RAPID funding in November 2017. Creation of this map was inspired by the "Transit Supporter Split" BLOG post.
