Responding to COVID-19

The Detroit Department of Transportation takes the COVID-19 situation very seriously. We are working with the City of Detroit, state and local public health officials and following the CDC’s guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

What DDOT is doing to help reduce the spread of COVID-19

What you can do to help reduce the spread of COVID-19

The Detroit Department of Transportation supports social distancing to help prevent the spread of germs and COVID-19. We ask that passengers:

  • Board and exit using the rear doors. Only customers who require ADA ramp or bus-knelling are to use the front doors.
  • Refrain from seating behind the bus driver.
  • Sit every other seat on the bus.
  • Contact Customer Service at (313) 933-1300 Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for bus information. Expect delays due to high call volumes.

Remember to use hand sanitizer dispensers where available and to wash your hands often, and cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. The CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
