Michigan Central Founding Member and Partnership Announcement
February 4, 2022
Three and a half years ago, we shared a bold vision for Michigan Central. We’re not just restoring an iconic building, we’re creating a unique mobility innovation district where the world will come to solve the mobility challenges of the future, together.
The problems we face today are too complex, too diverse, and too urgent to tackle alone. That’s why on Friday, February 4, 2022 we were thrilled to share a few announcements from our partners that will help advance our vision for the future of Michigan Central.
- Google is joining Ford as a Founding Member at Michigan Central, focusing its efforts on training and educating people in Detroit for the high-tech jobs of the future and collaborating to solve mobility problems challenging communities
- The state of Michigan plans to align more than $126 million in new and existing programming and resources to support the goals of the district, including the alignment of existing state projects
- City of Detroit administration is working with Michigan Central to designate a Transportation Innovation Zone in the district, where entrepreneurs and Founding Members can fast-track the safe piloting and deployment of new mobility solutions
