The getDowntown Program recently received a shipment of bike lights and reflective vests. Check out the picture above. Thanks again to the Ann Arbor DDA for providing the funds to make this purchase!
We care about your safety, so we are making these lights and vests available to downtown Ann Arbor employees (not UM-affiliated) for free.
We are particularly interested in getting them in the hands of employees who might not have the funds to purchase anything for themselves.
