The Regional Ride is the second of four annual reports to be published by the Michigan Land Use Institute in partnership with United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan. MLUI and UCP Michigan are part of the statewide Michigan Transportation & Land Use Coalition, which is working to make public transit — including services to people with disabilities — a local and state priority.
