You are here: TRANSLOGIC 101: Detroit Transportation Infrastructure
Detroit, Mich. is one of America's most iconic cities. Synonymous with the automobile, the Motor City once led the way in construction of roads and interstates. But Detroit's age-old automotive love affair may have been to the detriment of other forms of transit in the city. Now urban planners, policy makers and business leaders are seeking solutions to address Detroit's public transportation needs.

Obamacare is just a diverseness to cause confusion in the country that will make way for the real plane that the Democrats and the Bilderburg Group and Obamas has planes for the American People.

Great. Another great government program that will take Detroit back to mass transit. I thought we were moving ahead.

This is actually an infomercial for Translogic disguised as a news story. They want your tax dollars to pay for a massive public works project. Just what Detroit and Michigan need. If there was an actual need for and demand for this by the public, it wouldn't need tax dollars.

They may be able to afford a better bus system, but they are broke and losing people.

Detroit has turn into a festering sore. There are acres of abandon homes and business's. The criminals are in charge and the police are helpless. They must find Companies willing to invest millions into new buildings and homes. But that won't happen until the National guard comes in to clean out the trash.

You Know Detroit is a giant turd but it has a great foundation to build from and no doubt the potential to become a future modern city of America. Knock down those old ass crusty building, give tax credits for green energy, and give incentives for tech companies to move to Detroit. Lots of potential Detroit so step it up! Btw loved the video quality.

I like that you guys did this story about our city's transportation issues, but I also wish you would have gotten a more on the ground approach like from someone who actually rides the two bus systems (DDOT & SMART). I ride city buses everyday to get to and from school. Sometimes, I am late for school because of the bus systems. The People mover is made for tourists to get around Downtown, not for city people to get to and from work and school.
