is addressing mobility issues faced by the residents, visitors and employers within the city.
Representatives from Detroit, the state of Michigan
and the business and nonprofit sectors have come together to better understand the challenges residents face getting around Detroit. The Detroit
Mobility Innovation Initiative is looking for solutions to fix this problem within the city. After interviewing Detroiters, they identified four key areas that need to be addressed:
- Neighborhood Mobility – improving mobility offerings for Detroit residents using public transit to get to work and health care services.
- Downtown Accessibility – improving traffic conditions and parking offerings for Detroit residents looking for affordable and convenient parking close to home and Detroit employees who commute to the city for work or major events.
- Traffic Safety – reduce the number of traffic injuries and fatalities for Detroit pedestrians, bikers, drivers and riders.
- Electric Vehicle Utilization and Education – optimize the utilization of existing EV infrastructure and educate about EV.
