The college of Engineering invested $300,000 into electric car shuttles, also known as the Olli, which was funded by the GameAbove alumni foundation. This purchase is in relationship to the opening of a new space for the college at the American Center for Mobility for research and development. Now known as Eagle Shuttles, they will transport students and faculty around campus, as well as to nearby locations within the Ypsilanti community in a much more efficient manner.
