Join us to participate in the upcoming 2019 City:One Challenge.
Are you a resident of one of our challenge cities?:
What is your most common mode of transportation?:
I own a car.
Do you work for Ford or any of our challenge partners?:
If no, what organization do you work for?:
Self employed/Retired - Very Special Van Service, LLC
What are you hoping to get out of the challenge?:
Funds to start a pilot for getting residents to/from work and/or expanding transportation for community/farmers markets. Identify was to generate revenue to move idea to reality to provide a better quality of life for our community.
I have 2 proposals - (1) I want healthy/fresh food choices for my family, but I can't get there, because I don't have the financials means and (2) I want to work, but I can't get there, because I don't have the financial means or other obstacles that himder me from getting employment.
I would love to meet you and see if we can possibly partnership. I am considering starting a non-profit and seeking grants to move my platform.
Your thoughts and ideas would be appreciated. Please check out my website - veryspecialvanservice.com
No, I have not noticed any residents that wanted to use the service outside of the hours of operation. That is because I am only at the sites and markets on the day of operation (during the specific day and/or time). However, I am sure there are residents who would like to participate but can't due to other engagements (doctor appointments, sick, not in the budget for the specific day, or other personal needs/obligations) to occur on the day of the market in their area.
There could be instances where the market in their respective community/area is not open, but we could transport them to another farmers/community market that is either open year round, or in another city (Royal Oak, Lathrup Village, Waterford, etc.).
