The images below are false propaganda.

The voters decide to keep mass transit?





The County Transit Millage needs to be approved?





Avoid more cars sharing your commute?






For you, SMART is only a few dollars a month?
SMART a Lifeline for others and not you?
The buses will shut down without your YES vote in August 2022?



Voters will decide Aug. 6 whether the SMART transit system will continue to provide 200,000 rides a week - or shut down within 30 days.

SMART has been operating with farebox revenues, state and federal grants and, since 1995, a .33-mill property tax levy. Costs of vehicles, fuel, wages health coverage and liability insurance have continued to rise. Revenue has not kept pace. state and federal revenue has been proportionately diminishing.

SMART is asking for a .33 mill renewal and a .27 mill increase to keep the system operating.

Without the funding, SMART's funds will be used up in 30 days. The system will be shut down.
