Detroit Bus Company To Launch Greater Downtown Loop Tonight
After a successful trial run on May 5th, the Detroit Bus Company will be making its official inaugural run this Friday, June 8th.
It will circle hot spots in and around Downtown and Midtown from 6 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.
Stops include Corktown, Eastern Market, Woodbridge and New Center.
The main bus, “Bettis,” will depart from the parking lot behind O’Blivions Corktown Cafe at 1800 Michigan Ave., where secured parking will be available for $5, allowing riders to park and travel to their favorite Detroit hangouts throughout the evening
The $5 cost to ride (separate from parking) comes with an all-day wristband that gives passengers full access to ride for the day’s operating hours. The bus arrives about every 35 minutes at stops on the loop.
Payments can be made by cash or credit/debit card when boarding the bus at any of the stops. Printed maps of the route are available on the bus for riders to carry with them, and the route also is available
at thedetroitbus.com, where an app can be downloaded that shows where the bus is at any given moment.
Beginning this weekend and continuing every weekend afterward, the Detroit Bus Company will run its Greater Downtown Loop during the following hours:
● Fridays: 6 p.m.-2:30 a.m.
● Saturdays: 4 p.m.-2:30 a.m.
● Sundays: 1 p.m.-10 p.m.
Note: Routes also will run on all Detroit Tigers game days, from two hours before game time until two hours after, if games already don’t fall in the regular weekend schedule.
