Here’s your Daily Detroit podcast for August 28, 2018.

– You can say goodbye to the familiar Green and Yellow stripes on Detroit buses. In a parking lot on Gratiot outside of Mike’s Fresh Market, the city of Detroit today unveiled new buses, new services… and a new brand for the Detroit Department of Transportation. We talk to Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.

– The redevelopment of the shuttered Northland Mall is proceeding — if slowly. Fox 2 News reports that crews have demolished the old Firestone car service center on the 125-acre property.

– A market research and consulting company, Gongos, formerly based in Auburn Hills opened its new headquarters today in downtown Royal Oak, where it is moving around 120 employees.

– A unit of Subaru plans to expand its R&D operations in Wayne County after winning grants from the state.

– Ferne Boutique, a contemporary women’s clothing and accessory store, has opened in the New Center neighborhood of Detroit. Shianne Nocerini has the story.

– An appearance by English industrial metal band Godflesh was enough to entice a couple to leave their 11-year-old daughter unattended at home in Houston while they made the roughly 1,300-mile drive to see the band at El Club last week in Southwest Detroit.
