Justin Snowden: Micro-Mobilty in Detroit
Play • 32 min

The engineers and marketers who made Detroit the global center of automobiles were stunningly successful in getting us off the sidewalks and into our cars. Now urban planners see the need to reverse that scenario: get people on bikes, e-scooters and on their feet—out and about for the health of our people and our community cohesion. Justin Snowden (above), chief of Mobility Strategy, City of Detroit, shares insight from his unique perspective in the Motor City.  

Justin Snowden is a Mobility Strategist and Project Manager in the City of Detroit’s Office of Mobility Innovation. In this role, Justin works to test and deploy new technology, with the goal of bringing advanced mobility options to Detroit.   

In our interview, Justin and Kate discuss public transit in Detroit and we talk a lot about micro-mobility vehicles (like scooters, bikes) and how to make different transportation options accessible to everyone. We also talk about some lessons learned from the current pandemic and how streetscapes are changing as a result of people relying less on cars.
