Public transportation in the city proper is difficult if not impossible for aging adults to access. Cycling lanes have been painted all around town, there are electric scooters, a rapid transit bus and monorail that are located in the more affluent midtown and downtown neighborhoods. The traditional bus system is difficult to get to for those who do not live close to thoroughfares.

In the past fifteen years, Detroit has created a class of young wealthy persons. This was designed by a multimillionaire real estate developer with the support of heads of government in southeast Michigan. There is a virtual line of demarcation. The majority of persons who live south of Grand Boulevard are young and wealthy. Older residents' properties were taxed to the point of becoming unaffordable, forcing them to move beyond city boundaries.
