Possible Transit Center In Troy Will Be On The Table Again At Council Meeting

TROY (WWJ) -Supporters of a transit center in Troy will take another shot with a Plan B to be brought before their city council at Monday night’s meeting.

In a 4-3 vote last month, council turned down the plan that relied on $8 million federal dollars.

The latest proposal would be a smaller facility for trains, buses and taxis that would cost no more than $6.2 million dollars.

Councilman Dan Slater proposed it and has more on Monday’s vote.

“So this is supposed to be the last step, if we don’t do the last step, the feds will probably step in and say, ‘okay, we’re going to take the money somewhere else,’ and they probably would have done that had this new resolution not been brought forward on Monday,” said Slater.

If approved, the Troy Multi-Modal Transit Facility would combine train, bus, taxi and future light rail service at a 2.4-acre site near Maple and Coolidge.

The latest proposal would be a smaller facility for trains, buses and taxis that would cost no more than $6.2 million dollars.
