SMART Millage Recount Ends; Macomb County Bus Service Will Continue

The SMART millage recount appears to be over in Macomb County and the people who rely on the bus can breathe a sigh of relief. SMART services will continue to operate in all of Macomb County.
While the recount request has been withdrawn and appears to be over, SMART is waiting or the Macomb County Board of Canvassers to officially close the process. The original certified vote count will stand.
“We are thrilled to be able to get back to concentrating on doing what we do best, which is getting 70 percent of SMART riders to work and getting people with special needs and those who are unable to afford a car to the places they need to go,” said John C. Hertel, General Manager of SMART, “Now that this is over, we are going to continue to build on the successful service that has resulted in an 11 percent increase in ridership. Also, as always, we not only look forward to our collaboration with Macomb, Oakland and Wayne Counties, but also our renewed and promising coordination efforts with the City of Detroit.”
