KALAMAZOO< MI (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo voters went to the polls on Tuesday and easily passed a county wide millage question for Transportation, 11,747 to 4,499.  That funding when combined with a Kalamazoo city millage approved last November, will provide local funding for the next four years.   

Transit Board Chair Linda Teeter says in that time they hope to put together their long sought county Transportation authority. The system also relies on fare revenues and state transportation dollars to keep the buses rolling.
