Transportation in Detroit


Buses are available throughout Downtown, with easy online route planning. To move outside city limits, use the SMART regional system.


Downtown Detroit is becoming more pedestrian-friendly every day. Try the river walk near the Renaissance Centre for a new perspective of the city and explore the Cultural District's museums, lofts and galleries on foot.


Taxis are plentiful outside Downtown hotels and casinos. Calling ahead is necessary for trips picking up outside Downtown.


Detroit's only light rail, the PeopleMover is an easy way to explore galleries, sports venues, and theatres, but its circuit is limited to Downtown. Expect crowds on days of major sporting events year-round.

Rent your car

Motor City, as Detroit is often known, is the centre of the US car industry, and its roads are made for the car. There’s a well-organised freeway system that’s easy to navigate, and even during peak periods the traffic keeps flowing. There’s no shortage of car parks downtown, some of them free.

Transportation tips

A daily, weekly or monthly Go Pass gives unlimited bus travel on Detroit city buses; regional DDOT/SMART passes are available, but only on a monthly basis. Driving in Detroit's suburbs is a snap. Driving Downtown can be confusing, given the city's hub-and-spoke design and frequently changing street names. However, destinations and attractions are clearly marked. Metered parking can be hard to find, so it is best to find a centrally located parking garage or lot, most of which are inexpensive or free.
