The following statement can be attributed to the leaders of the Capital Council of Governments (CAPCOG):
CAPCOG has been working with our three regional transit authorities since 2016 to encourage better coordination within their networks to improve residents’ and workers’ abilities to make the necessary connections. The agreement between the Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA), Eaton County Transportation Authority (EATRAN), and Clinton Area Transit System to pursue better regional coordination of their transportation systems through Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, should lead to a smoother and less time-consuming travel experience for citizens riding on their respective public transit systems. CAPCOG strongly believes that regional causes such as improving our public transit systems are more critical than jurisdictional lines and partisan politics. This regional agreement is a shining example of putting that mission into action.
