The Michigan Land Use Institute takes an interesting look at the role of the Bay Area Transit Authority (BATA) in the overall transportation mix of the region that includes a brief video. They write that:
On Tuesday, November 6, BATA is asking voters like me to approve a renewal of 0.35 mills to continue funding bus service in Grand Traverse and Leelanau Counties. Itâ€™s not a tax increase, but simply a renewal of what weâ€™ve been BATA over the last three years. The owner of a $100,000 home, with a taxable value of $50,000, BATA says, will continue to pay $17.50 a yearâ€”about a nickel a day.
