DDOT and CVS Team Up

In an effort to make local mass transit easier for Detroit residents, the Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) is now selling bus passes at all CVS stores in Detroit.

According to Transportation Riders United (TRU) executive director Megan Owens, "weekly, bi-weekly, monthly and regional bus passes are available. That's in addition to all the other locations that sell bus passes, including the Cadillac Tower lobby store, all neighborhood city halls, Comerica Bank branches in Detroit, and several city supermarkets."

You can also buy DDOT passes online here. Passes for SMART buses are available online here.

Also, in case you hadn't heard, SMART announced last week that it has partnered up with Google and is now offering the incredibly helpful Google Trip Planner to its riders.

Get the low-down on the Trip Planner and what it means for you here.
