On Thursday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced a new statewide strategy to ensure Michigan remains the global leader in the future of mobility. The MI Future Mobility Plan maps out a comprehensive strategy that addresses future mobility challenges by growing the mobility workforce, providing more accessible transportation infrastructure and developing innovative mobility policies. Developed by the governor’s Office of Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME) and its Council on Future Mobility and Electrification (CFME), both of which were formed in 2020 to coordinate a statewide mobility strategy, the plan is an actionable next step to address the opportunities and challenges that Michigan faces in remaining a leader in the mobility and electrification revolution.
In developing the collaborative mobility plan, OFME and CFME worked closely with experts in the Michigan Departments of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO); Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy; Natural Resources; Treasury; Insurance and Financial Services; Michigan State Police; Michigan Economic Development Corporation; and Michigan Public Service Commission. Broken down into three key pillars, the MI Future Mobility Plan lays out specific goals that will help create a stronger state economy through safer, more equitable and environmentally sound transportation.
