When I meet Josh Westerhold at the offices of Project 100, the Las Vegas urban mobility startup that's funded by the Downtown Project, we decide it would probably make sense to head out into downtown Vegas to tour their project area in person. From the other room, his co-worker has an even better idea: "Take the Tesla."
Project 100 is one of a handful of startups that represent the most exciting aspect of the Downtown Project's scope: Private companies stepping up to improve services for downtown Vegas residents in everything from education to healthcare. In Project 100's case, that means supplying a comprehensive, membership-based suite of transportation alternatives for the downtown area. Including 100 shiny new Teslas.
