The forum was originally scheduled to be held at the Scio Township Hall, but will now be from 7-9 p.m. at 3255 Alpine St. in Dexter.
AATA representatives said the forums provide the community the opportunity to give feedback on the proposed countywide public transportation improvements.
The proposed plan would require $38.3 million in extra capital investments over five years and add $13.3 million to yearly operating costs when all elements are implemented.
Officials have said the program takes all of the research and feedback the AATA received over the last two years while creating a 30-year transit master plan.
The program would enhance existing Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti services and increase access to public transit in underserved areas of the county.
If implemented, some changes residents in the county would see include door-to-door service for seniors and people with disabilities, express routes, new park-and-ride lots, increased service frequency and improved weekend service.
The last public forum meeting will be Thursday from 7- 9 p.m. at the Pittsfield Senior Center located at 701 W. Ellsworth Road.
