Scio Township’s more than 16,000 residents lack sufficient public transportation options. The P4T VOTE YES Scio Township Campaign is working hard to change that!
On November 3rd, 2015, voters in the township will have a chance to approve a community wide funding mechanism that would secure 3 crucial connecting bus routes, attain Dial-A-Ride para-transit service, as well as an expanded bus route on Jackson Rd. from Zeeb Rd. and then onto Baker Rd.
For specifics about the service, ballot language, & proposed routes click here.
We hope we can count on your vote!
