6 Pilots the Detroit Mobility Innovation Initiative May Deploy

The Detroit Mobility Innovation Initiative launched Monday and plans to establish pilot programs addressing mobility gaps in Michigan’s largest city, a place notorious for being difficult to get around without a car. Detroit’s public transit is consistently ranked among the worst in the U.S., which was cited as a reason why the area didn’t make the cut for Amazon’s HQ2.

A public-private partnership involving both the city and state governments, the initiative aims to increase access to public transit for residents headed to work or health services, improve traffic congestion and parking, make roads safer for all travel modes and boost the use of electric vehicles.
