DDOT Independence Day Observance

In observance of Independence Day, the Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) will operate on a Sunday schedule Saturday, July 4.

Passengers are to contact Customer Service by completing the DDOT Customer Feedback Form at www.detroitmi.gov.

Plan your trip using the Transit App, or view the Sunday schedules at the Rosa Parks Transit Center or online.

DDOT's Administrative Building at 1301 E. Warren Ave. Detroit, MI 48207, will remain closed until further notice


Our office wants to invite you to an event we are hosting next week with the Detroit Land Bank about their new vacant land policies and ways that you can purchase and access vacant land in your neighborhood! Some of these new policies include the opportunity to purchase land up to 500 ft from your house, and not necessarily directly adjacent to your property. 
This is especially relevant for D6 leaders who wish to purchase vacant land in their neighborhoods for projects like a community garden. 
For more, please tune in next Wednesday, July 8th at 5PM on Zoom! To join directly on Zoom go to bit.ly/D6land or join with Meeting ID 991 5553 5368, password D6land. 
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me back! Hope to see you there.

Cities can't function without public transit. We all depend on the janitors and nurses and others who depend on transit.
So what happened to transit when COVID-19 struck? And what's next?
Join us next Wednesday to find out and discuss ways to make transit as safe as possible despite the pandemic.
  • How have transit agencies responded?
  • What’s being done to ensure bus safety?
  • What’s next for Detroit area transit?
Detroit's new Director of Transit Mikel Oglesby and SMART's Robert Cramer will share what their agencies have done to minimize risk and their plans as more businesses re-open.
Bus riders are also strongly encouraged to come share your experiences and recommendations too.
This will be the first in a series of virtual Transit Town Halls bringing issue experts together with community experience to help shape the future of Detroit area transit.
Login details for this Zoom event will be shared shortly beforehand. RSVP on Facebook or by replying to receive details.
