Riding the Transit Windsor Tunnel Bus, plus DDOT & Windsor Buses, 14.03.12
Starting in Detroit's New Center and finishing in downtown Windsor,
Ontario, here is a look at Detroit Dept. of Transportation (DDOT) and
Transit Windsor buses in the international region.
The main focus here is a real-time view of the ride from downtown Detroit,
through the Detroit-Windsor International Tunnel, and into downtown Windsor
at the toll booths and customs office. Passengers are dropped off at the
customs offices on either side of the tunnel entrance, depending on
direction travelled, complete their customs check, and once through, have
the option of re-boarding the Tunnel Bus to be taken to another point in
the downtowns of either city. The service is popular with Americans going
to Windsor casinos, and with Canadians for Detroit Red Wings games and
other sporting events. As well, the bus is an easy and important
international link for long-distance travellers (I was using it to get from
Detroit's Amtrak station to Windsor's VIA Rail station, for instance).
Aside from the Tunnel Bus (which here is being run with a 40-foot NovaBus
LFS), DDOT TMC and New Flyer buses are also seen, as well as SMART (Detroit
suburban transit) Gillig buses. In Windsor, a new New Flyer hybrid on the
1A-Transway route is seen at Park & Ouellette streets downtown.
