I have ideas from transportation and shopping in the area. I also have a plan for servicing the autonomous/manned vehicles.

Happy Sunday to you as well Boratha! Last time I was in Corktown was a few weeks back. I had a business partner in from out of town. We originally were headed downtown, but it was very busy. The parking was also up to 50 dollars. Instead we headed over to Cork Town and parked in front of the train station. From there we walked around from the brewery down to the baseball field and checked out some of the places on the way. That being said had there of been quick cost efficient way sitting there to head downtown we probably would have (I know about uber)(Also I would ad biking or scooters would not have been a option as my quest was older).
To me this area becomes very important not just to the city but the state as well. Being the host of both Ford (a global iconic brand) and having the title of motor city; puts more importance on having a great transportation system.(I think this challenge is a great step in the right direction). It is also my personal opinion that semi autonomous/fully autonomous is the future and should be the focus. Done correctly this area can be leveraged to bolster not just national, but international travel as well.
As a reference I have worked for the companies that handle the automotive supply chain portal, OEM and supplier ERP, PLM systems and OEM and supplier quality. One project I was product manager of I was going to use a facility around the corner of the train station. In this situation mobility absolutely became a issue (among others) as the project would scale from 25 to 180 people. I have since turned to technology to help manage those issues.
