Hello Anthony Villano thanks for your input on this topic. I'm Alex, one of the Michigan Central Station Challenge Facilitators. I am really intrigued by this idea and I'm curious how this can translate directly to a mobility effort for the Michigan Central Station area? What does this look like in the spaces around the station and in the mobility realm?
