Detroit Mayor is trying to use his emergency powers to keep paratransit services in Detroit

Detroit could be headed toward a transit crisis for hundreds of thousands of people with disabilities. The city council voted against a new contract with Transdev which would lead to big cuts in paratransit services. To put this in perspective, paratransit services are used by around 130,000 people. That is enough people to fill Comerica Park three times. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is now stepping up, hoping he can use his emergency powers to continue the service.
