Ferndale entrepreneur puts movement back in Motown
Ferndale entrepreneur Andy Didorosi puts movement back in Motown with his latest venture, the Detroit Bus Company, a small transit system providing rides into downtown Detroit.
Redesigned 60-passenger school buses take passengers to various locations such as Midtown, Corktown and Woodbridge.
For $5, riders can hop on and off all day. Customers can contact the bus via text message or Twitter to be picked up along the route. A map and tracking app are available on the company’s website.
Didorosi, 25, says he’s not competing with Detroit’s public transit system; he just wants to connect communities.
“The more we separate the city from its suburbs,” he says, “we have more issues.”
