Not to be confused with Metro Transit in Kalamazoo, MI.
Metropolitan Transit was an agency that provided service to the western and Downriver suburbs of Detroit, including Allen Park, Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, Inkster, Lincoln Park, Riverview, Southgate, Taylor, Wayne, and Westland.
 In early 1962, Bert Jasper, the final president of the Intertown Suburban Lines when that agency shut down on December 31, 1961, managed to gather together ten investors; obtain the proper approvals; acquire some ex-Intertown buses; and formed Metropolitan Transit. After six long months of idle buses, service would resume on February 19, 1962, with 60 buses, all based out of the Dearborn Garage. Although some routes were immediately eliminated, new service was later added. During the mid-1960s, Metro Transit contracted with the Ford Motor Company to shuttle workers within the Rouge auto plant and to also transport tourists from Greenfield Village to plant tours through the Ford Rouge complex. Ironically, buses used for the shuttles were actually New Looks built by General Motors Corporation, though the GM badge was replaced by the bus number and a large Ford logo bolted on the sides, likely attempts to hide GM identifications. By 1968, the Metro bus fleet had increased to 78 coaches operating along 14 bus routes.
On January 1, 1974, Metro Transit was acquired by Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority. Today, Metro Transit routes are serviced by Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation's 1xx and 2xx routes.
