The Motor City is synonymous with the car. It’s called, after all, the Motor City. But will the next chapter of Detroit be so car-focused? And how will those changes happen?
Today’s episode of Daily Detroit is a conversation with Kevin Bopp, the Vice President of Parking and Mobility for Bedrock. That’s the real estate arm of Dan Gilbert’s family of companies.

Topics include the parking woes of downtown Detroit, public transit, scooters, the new ride sharing program Scoop, and there’s a bold call that the Detroit People Mover will see a renaissance.
One more thing to know before you go.
Marygrove College has announced that it will be closing due to declines in enrollment and large debts. The fall 2019 semester will be the final semester for the 92 year old Catholic college.
