North American International Auto Show

The North American International Auto Show Mobility Center, premiering with the 2012 edition of the NAIAS, will provide new transportation options and opportunities for those living with disabilities.

"Living with a disability doesn't have to mean the end of personal mobility," says NAIAS 2012 Chairman Bill Perkins. "Today there are so many more options for those who are physically challenged than there were just a few years ago. We're pleased to bring together a group of manufacturers and equipment providers that are committed to assisting those with special needs."

Located in Cobo Center's Michigan Hall, the NAIAS Mobility Center will feature a variety of vehicles, accessories, vehicle conversions, and adaptive devices that address special transportation needs, as well as innovations in mobility. In addition, vehicles that have been modified to accommodate disabled drivers, and accessories that allow standard vehicles to be adapted - all designed to help improve quality of life - will be on display.

During the NAIAS, Cobo Center provides motorized scooters on a first-come, first-served basis for people with disabilities. Advance reservations are accepted by Cobo Hospitality at (313) 877-8290. Each scooter is $25.00 per day and limited to a 4-hour period per use at Cobo Center during show hours. Valid driver’s license and signed rental agreement required with each reservation.
