Highlighting a member that you should get to know.
As part of our ongoing "Featured Member" service, we are proud to recognize 8MBA's newest member, Freshwater Transit Solutions and their Co-Founding Vice President, Stephen Maiseloff. Freshwater Transit is a local and innovative start-up company focused on providing a reformation to the way that transit works, and how communities view using public transit in Michigan. Freshwater provides services across every aspect of transit including, Service Planning, Branding and Identity, Operations, and Community Engagement. They entered onto the scene in 2011, as the brains behind the proposed Freshwater Railway System, a conceptual ideation for transit and bus lines connecting 5 zones across Michigan, stretching as far as Port Huron, Flint, Jackson, and even Toledo, Ohio.
Freshwater has hosted expeditions to other nearby cities from Detroit where transit innovations were taking place. Freshwater lead a trip to Grand Rapids to let metro Detroiters see and experience the Silver Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). These trips helped showcase the utility and viability that public transit innovation like the BRT could have in our area. they were also retained by the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy for work on a water taxi service.
Currently they are focused on their project, 15 Minutes or Better, a media campaign created to educate Metro Detroiters on how people in other cities across the country use public transit in their everyday lives.
