I just started working downtown and I don't want to pay daily for parking. Someone told me there is a garage that has parking for about $100 a year, does anyone know about this?

Are there any other reasonable deals out there? I know the Opera House had $50 MTM deals, but that is it.

I can't believe anywhere downtown would be that cheap. The garage by my building charges that for a week ($20 a day).

How about scrolling down the page and just using the already active parking thread.

I don't know much about "Viziondetroit," but how come he's not taking public transportation--the Holy Grail? I thought this forum was loaded with proponents of mass transit. Could this be another "Don't mind what I do, but do as I say"?

So multiply that by many thousands thinking similarly. You could be providing just another good reason to demonstrate that mass transit of any kind is doomed to costly failure...

That's a great idea, I'll let my 4 and 5 year olds walk to school. Why didn't I think of that, thats the safest and most reliable way to handle it. Thanks guys

What percentage of Detroiters do not have cars? Kids or no kids, there are some who need mass transit!

Or the fact that below the age of 25 one cannot rent a car. There are quite a few business men/women that will be venturing to Detroit by plane who are such. What will they use?

There is a large percentage of people who need mass transit, let me rephrase.. RELIABLE mass transit.

"1/3 of detroiters do not have cars."

I hope so. One-third of Detroiters are probably not old enough to get a driver's license. And a heap of others couldn't read the written exam.

But, no fear... It's legal to have the written test spoken to those who cannot read.

Actually,

The numbers are (from the 2000 census-SF3):

H44. TENURE BY VEHICLES AVAILABLE - Universe: Occupied housing units:

21.9% of households have no vehicle. 44.1% of households have 1 vehicle. (Remember that many households have more than one adult who could drive.) (Also remember that only a tiny percentage or unfortunate householders are under the age of 16.)

P8. SEX BY AGE - Universe: Total population:

28.1% of all people are 15 years of age or under.

http://factfinder.census.gov/

Livernoisyard,

There may be a big problem with functional literacy, but you don't have to be very literate to pass the driving test. I'm sure there are relatively few Detroiters who are completely illiterate. Missing the difference is ignorant.

the number i posted was probably older, but could still be in effect,,surely many of the 21.9$ of the households without cars have multiple residents, hiking the rate up towards 1/3....

thanks for finding the sources jsmeyers..

Park the gas guzzler (Isn't there a park & ride lot out there?) near Telegraph and 7 or 8 and then ride the bus. Flimsy excuse, err rationale.
