Can the bus be the “in” thing as far as getting around town? Tastes are changing around the country and here in Detroit. Many younger adults don’t feel the same attachment to the car as previous generations.
Today our conversation on the podcast is with Sarosh Irani. He was recently featured in the national publication Streetsblog for his research at Wayne State University to improve Detroit’s bus system.
For instance, just by moving the shelters to where people actually need them — not building new ones — 8x more people could have access to bus shelters.
And shelters matter as weather in Detroit? As you know, it can be a real thing to deal with.
Also on the show:
Chicago-style pizza joint Giordano’s downtown Detroit outpost closes without fanfare. We have feelings.
And, sadly, Cutie Pie the goat has passed on. Cutie Pie and his owner Erick Brown have been spotted numerous times around Detroit. Fortunately, Brown still has Deer, a second therapy goat. If you’re unfamiliar with Erick and his therapy goats, try this video.
