The new FAST bus service connects downtown Detroit to points in Macomb, Oakland, and Western Wayne county.

A new bus service is operating along three main traffic arteries in Metro Detroit. The FAST service connects the city to points in Macomb, Oakland, and Western Wayne county.

Morning Edition host Doug Tribou and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry discuss whether this smaller-scale project will be enough for public transit in Detroit.

They also talk about new legislation to prevent Michigan State University from using taxpayer dollars to pay out any settlements related to the crimes committed by former sports doctor Larry Nassar, Lansing's new mayor Andy Schor, and a lawsuit against Gov. Rick Snyder over the timing of the 13th District special election.

Doug Tribou joined the Michigan Public staff as the host of Morning Edition in 2016. Doug first moved to Michigan in 2015 when he was awarded a Knight-Wallace journalism fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
