Congratulations to MPTA Members: Cass County Transit and Shiawassee Area Transportation

We are pleased to offer congratulations to both Cass County Transit Authority and the Shiawassee Area Transit Agency which saw approval of millage requests on Tuesday's ballot. In the City of Owosso, voters overwhelmingly approved a new millage of .333 of a mill for public transportation operations by 71% approval with 1899  "yes" votes to 788 "no."  In past years Owosso voters have supported similar millages but the last voted millage had expired in 2022.The situation was much closer in Cass County where voters narrowly (by just 14 votes) gave approval for the first time in history to a countywide millage for Cass Transit operations. This will incorporate Dowagiac Dial A Ride (which already had city financial support) into the full county system going forward.While both results are great news for the transit agencies, the real winners are the residents of Owosso and Cass County who will see continued and future expanded public transportation services.
