Detroit is the Motor City, so it's beneficial to have a car as a student in Detroit, but it's not the end of the world if you don't. Many students take advantage of the weekly shuttle trips to the grocery store, CVS, or the shopping mall. You can get a bike and ride around with friends to different places just for fun, or with the CCS Bike Club for exercise.

CCS' shuttles will bring you back and forth between each campus, as well as the store, so you don't really need a car to survive, and there are always people carpooling to different cool events and concerts happening in and around Detroit.
