      Grand Rapids’ bus service wants to be more efficient and help the environment. That’s why it’s introducing a new electronic fare system Tuesday.

      The new Wave cards will replace the paper tickets and change that riders usually pay with.

      President Trump’s proposed budget would eliminate the federal funding for a group that works to preserve Michigan’s automotive history. The MotorCities National Heritage Area covers 16 counties and includes museums, parks and entertainment venues, including the Henry Ford Museum, the Michigan International Speedway and the Michigan Theatre in Jackson.

      I-96 crash leaves traffic backup, 3 dead

      Dec 8, 2016

      Update, December 9, 2016:

      Westbound I-96 has reopened following yesterday's fatal crash. The Livingston County Sheriff's Office now says 53 vehicles are believed to have been involved in the incident which left three people dead.

      Two of the victims have been identified as Homer Leon Tew, 69, and Theresa O'Connor Tew, 62, of Ann Arbor. The third victim was a 28-year-old man believed to be from Hollywood, Florida. Authorities are still trying to notify his family and have not yet released his name.

      The crash remains under investigation.

      The Next Idea

      In the 122 years that Michigan has been making cars, the automobile industry has taught us that it’s not about having the parts but how you put them together that makes all the difference. A disassembled car is just a pile of 20,000 or more pieces of dull metal, washers, connectors, nuts and ugly wiring piled in your driveway. But put them all together and you get the most transformative technology of the 20th?century.

      Earlier this year, on January 9, a massive pileup along I-94 involved close to 200 vehicles in eastern Kalamazoo County. One person was killed. Today, federal and state officials released a 94-page report that makes several recommendations to improve many parts of the I-94 corridor, including the area around mile-marker 90 where the crash occurred.

      More than half of Detroit, Flint and Grand Rapids' roads are in poor condition, according to a?recent study?by the transportation research group?TRIP. That makes them some of the worst in the nation.

      After Proposal ?1 was voted down earlier this month, the message from voters seemed to be that they wanted a bill that simply addressed road funding. No extra politics, special interests or provisions.

      So what happens when you strip away the politics of road repair? What goes into the actual, well, road repair?

      You know how it can go: flight delays - angry customers - long line - baggage that goes astray.

      A group of University of Michigan engineers is busy crunching a lot of numbers in the hopes of reducing the impact of one of the leading causes of flight delays: bad weather.

      Amy Cohn is an associate professor in industrial and operations engineering at Michigan. She has a special interest in airline industry operations and she joined us today.

      GALESBURG, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say all lanes have reopened on Interstate 94 in southwestern Michigan two days after the 193-vehicle pileup on the snowy highway.

      ??State transportation officials say the eastbound lanes reopened Sunday morning, a few hours after those on the westbound side.

      ??Efforts to reopen the highway stalled Saturday as crews tried to remove acid from a tanker truck.

      Update 9:45 p.m.

      Michigan State Police now say there were 193 vehicles in total involved in the pile up.

      Police say there were 76 semi-trucks involved in the accident. Some caught fire, including one hauling 44,000 pounds of hazardous materials and another with a load of fireworks.

      Several hours after the crash, crews were still putting out flare ups.

      One of the truck drivers died. The 57-year old was from Quebec. At least 20 people were injured, including two firemen and a wrecker driver.

      For the world's automakers 2014 was full of good news and some very, very bad news.

      We take a look back at the year with Michele Krebs, director of Automotive Relations with the Auto Trader Group, and Tracy Samilton, Michigan Radio's auto reporter.

      Listen to our conversation with them below.

      The state House has passed a $1.2 billion plan to boost road funding without raising taxes and instead using money that would otherwise go to schools and local governments.

      A bill approved Thursday night by the Republican-led chamber would gradually eliminate the 6 percent sales tax at the pump and gradually increase per-gallon fuel taxes.

      Americans care more about fuel economy than ever before, but did you know that the EPA does their MPG testing at their laboratory in Ann Arbor?

      The EPA's Office of Transportation and Air Quality is located on Plymouth Road and employs 450 workers. It was created in 1970? for its close distance to the "Big Three."?

      But cars aren't the only vehicle subject to MPG testing. From weed whackers to ocean vessels, anything with a motor must meet the EPA's standards.

      With so many vehicles being released the lab doesn't have time to check all of them individually. Instead, the dealers themselves test their own vehicles and are subject to audits to make sure their own results can be matched when tested in the Ann Arbor lab.

      Chris Grundler, director of the EPA's Office of Transportation and Air Quality, understands their work's importance.

      The office is in charge of setting the standards along with enforcing them. Their testing is done not only to protect the environment, but to make sure consumers receive the quality advertised to them when investing in a new vehicle.

      You can listen to our conversation with Grundler below.

      Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, FCA,?will hold a public stock offering to sell off 10% of Ferrari and dole out the remaining 80% of the company to current shareholders.

      Piero Ferrari will hold onto his 10%.

      Michigan Radio's automotive reporter Tracy Samilton discussed this sale with us.

      Samilton says that about 7,000 Ferraris are made a year, which along with their price, gives the vehicle an “unattainable mystique.”

      The dispute over stretching that number to make more sales is a contributing factor to the split between FCA and Ferrari.

      Amtrak announced on Saturday that it will be adding 18 trains in Michigan during the Thanksgiving holiday travel period.

      According to an Amtrak press release:?

      The busiest travel days are the Tuesday and Wednesday ?before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after the holiday. Other than Thanksgiving Day, morning ?trains typically have more available seats than those in the afternoon and evening.

      Asking his friends was a dead end, but that didn't stop Imperiale's curiosity. He took to MI Curious and asked a simple question: 8 Mile is 8 miles from where??

      Will Ann Arbor succeed with its bike sharing program?

      Bike share programs are not a new concept – there are successful bike share programs in major cities all throughout the world. If you travel around North America, you'll find citywide bike share programs in Chicago, New York, Boston, Austin, Des Moines, Denver, Boulder, D.C., Madison (WI), Minneapolis/St. Paul, Philadelphia, Columbus, Charlotte, Chattanooga, Baltimore, the Bay Area, Toronto, and Montreal, among others. ?

      At the end of September the new?ArborBike?bike share program in downtown Ann Arbor debuted, becoming the first and currently only public bike share program in southeastern Michigan.?

      As part of our M I Curious project, Nick Ochal asked Michigan Radio this question:

      What is the origin of the infamous "Michigan Left" that befuddles so many out-of-staters?

      Preparing track for the M-1 rail project in Detroit.

      Dignitaries including Michigan Gov. Snyder, Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow, Representatives John Dingell and John Conyers, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, and business leaders Roger Penske and Dan Gilbert were on hand for a "track signing" ceremony this morning in Detroit.

      The M-1 rail project is streetcar line planned for a 3.3. mile stretch along Woodward Ave. in Detroit. The project has received more than $35 million in federal funds, but the majority of its financing comes from private backers.

      Gov. Rick Snyder says massive flooding this week in and around Detroit reinforces the need to boost state spending on roads. Snyder says Michigan’s crumbling infrastructure may have played a role in the floods, although it’s too early to tell for sure.

      “I don’t want to be premature, but you would imagine it would have some consequences in terms of magnifying the effect on the freeway flooding,” Snyder told reporters as he surveyed damage at homes and schools in Royal Oak on Friday. “That wouldn’t have affected the homes, but in terms of the freeway challenges.”

      It's hard to imagine driving without the guidance of the tri-color traffic light, isn't it?

      Turns out, that tri-color light that keeps us from crashing into each other at intersections was the brainchild of a Detroit police officer.

      Matt Anderson is curator of transportation at The Henry Ford museum complex. Anderson says there had generally been two lights – one telling us to stop and the other telling us to go. But William Potts, a Detroit police officer, found a way to make the lights safer.

      “It was Potts’?inspiration to put in the third light, sort of amber caution, letting you know the signal change is imminent, so that you can prepare to slow down,” says Anderson.

      Today, there are more than 3oo,000 intersections with traffic signals throughout the U.S.

      And where was the first four-way traffic signal tower installed in the world?

      It was at a corner of Woodward Avenue here in Detroit, says Anderson.

      Everybody has their own philosophy when it comes to merging in construction zones.

      Conventional wisdom on the roads seems to be that when faced with an approaching merge, you should just get over as soon as you can and just wait for your turn like a good little driver.

      The people whizzing by in the open lane are looked down upon - morally corrupt drivers making a?BAD decision refusing to get in line and wait for their turn.?

      Watching the other drivers zoom ahead makes you feel like this:

      There are many different auto museums – some dedicated to displaying cars with unique engineering and designs, and others dedicated to displaying the automobile’s impact on society.

      Michigan's auto museums have had?little success.?Flint’s "Autoworld"?theme park closed two years after opening, and the Walter P. Chrysler Museum closed its doors recently.

      Europe has had a different experience.

      Autostadt, which means “auto city” in German, is in?Wolfsburg, Germany. It averages about two million visitors per year. BMW and Porsche also have notable museums in Germany.

      Why do auto museums in Europe succeed, while those in the auto capital of the world have not?

      “Europeans seem to have such a deep bond with their vehicles,” says Paul?Eisenstein, publisher of ?The Detroit Bureau. “They are seemingly more interested in the mechanicals and what have you. They have a tendency to be drawn to automotive exhibits, museums, parks, and everything at a much greater rate than Americans are.”

      *Listen to our interview with Eisenstein at 3 p.m. today. We'll post the audio for that interview here around 4:30 p.m.?

      In spite of its nickname, the Motor City has well-known transportation problems.

      A large proportion of Detroiters don't own cars, and buses are notoriously late and overcrowded.

      Now, residents have a new option.

      It's a website based on a platform used at colleges, called detroit.ridepost.com.

      Debra Rowe heads the Detroit Green Skills Alliance, which works on sustainability issues.

      She convinced the person who created the platform to donate it, and says it will be useful for all kinds of people.
