DDOT June 8 Rider Alert
Effective Monday, June 8 the Detroit Department of Transportation will modify its fixed-route service to limit overcrowding on high-frequency routes until weekday service is restored.
Service frequency will increase on the majority of our 24-hour routes that are experiencing heavy ridership — resulting in decreased wait times by 15 to 30-minutes on most routes.
Service on the following express lines will gradually become available:
- 89-Southwest Direct; and the
- 80-Village Direct.
To ensure the health and safety of our drivers and passengers, DDOT will continue to:
- Clean the bus at the beginning and end of the line each time the bus completes a trip;
- Provide free rides to prevent the need for passengers to use the fare box at the front of the bus;
- Allow entry and exit from the rear doors of the bus only with the exception of all ADA passengers.;
- Prohibit seating immediately behind the driver;
- Provide drivers with masks, gloves and sanitary wipes; and
- Provide free surgical masks to passengers until supplies last.
DDOT is committed to rigorous bus sanitizing practices and is working continually to enhance our health and safety protocols.
