MTA Opens New Your Ride Center

Flint’s Mass Transportation Authority has opened the newly built Davison Your Ride service center with a ribbon cutting ceremony today. The center, which will accommodate the city of Davison, Davison Township, Richfield
Township, Otisville and Forest Township, is the latest addition to the MTA’s Your Ride centers.

The Davison location is larger than previously built centers because it will cover both Davison and Otisville as well as surrounding townships. The garage will hold 21 El Dorado vehicles. The facility has lightening protection and has a back up IT server room and generator.

Two tanks, one holding propane and one containing unleaded gas are also on the 7.2 acre property. This will enable the vehicles to fill up on site. The fuel tanks also have canopies over them.

“The need for transportation services in our community, continue to grow. This new expanded facility provides us the opportunity to meet current and future needs in the Davison, Davison Twp, Richfield and Otisville areas,” Ed Benning, General Manager, CEO stated.

MTA board, and community members attended the ribbon cutting event.
