Hello Movil Drive ! I am a Michigan Central Station Challenge facilitator. Thank you for your proposal! I see on your website that you specialize in Car Sharing and Fleet Monitoring. What types of services will be available to the citizens of Detroit? Who would provide the vehicle? Are the vehicles owned by your company or are they owned by private citizens? Thank you for the information!
