Officials discuss regional transit plan

November 16, 2008


— Officials in Jackson, Clay and Platte counties say they will take the lead on a regional mass transit plan in wake of Kansas City's failed light-rail proposal.

They discussed the details for a tri-county regional transit authority Friday at a regional transit meeting that was the first since Kansas City voters rejected a sales tax increase for light rail Nov. 4.

A combination of commuter rail, light rail and bus rapid transit has been discussed in earlier talks concerning a tri-county regional system.
