What is the Detroit ADS project?

An Opportunity for an Innovative Solution

Older adults and people with disabilities (PwD) in Detroit lack adequate transportation solutions that can increase opportunities, access, and independence.

This potential solution is proudly crafted for Detroiters by Detroiters. Our project aims to provide an ADS shuttle service for older adults and people with disabilities, helping residents get to critical locations such as doctor's appointments, grocery store, and more.
