Washtenaw County residents aged 50 and over may not get out and about as easily as younger folks.  It can be even harder for those with less financial means.  A new pilot program called "AARP Ride@50+" was developed to make public transit more accesible, and its community development manager, Alison Petersen, joined WEMU's David Fair to discuss the program and what it has, so far, achieved.

Research, development and the implementation of automated cars and transportation systems have already made Washtenaw County one of the nation’s largest mobility hubs in the country.  Where we go from here is the subject of an event taking place today.

The Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber is hosting its Impact 2018 session from 11am-3pm today at the Toyota Motor North America Research & Development facility on Platt Road in Saline.

89.1 WEMU’s Patrick Campion caught up with the chamber’s Executive Vice President & Director of Government Relations Andy LaBarre to learn more about the event and get a glimpse of Washtenaw County’s mobility future.
