Getting Around Detroit [MAP]

Bus riders in Detroit now have hundreds of new ways to get around the city. The city’s Department of Transportation today announced the addition of 650 bus trips – the second major expansion in the last six months. It includes three new direct routes and three additional 24-hour service routes.

The added transit is not just about convenience, says Mayor Mike Duggan, it’s about helping city residents get to jobs.

I run into people almost weekly who tell me, ‘I was able to take that job because 24-hour services were restored.’” Duggan says. “It’s hard to imagine a city without 24-hour bus service, but that is where Detroit was not very long ago.”

Detroit now has nine 24-hour routes including along Jefferson, Michigan and Van Dyke avenues.
