The Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT, pronounced "D-Dot") is the public transportation operator of city bus service in Detroit, Michigan. In existence since 1922, it has headquarters in the Midtown section of Detroit and is a municipal department of the city government.

Overview[edit]

As the largest public transit agency in the state of Michigan, DDOT primarily serves the city of Detroit, with some additional and limited service to nearby cities of Dearborn, Hamtramck, Highland Park (both are Detroit enclaves), Harper Woods, Livonia, Redford Township, River Rouge and Southfield.[3] DDOT has a fare and ride agreement with the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation as it supplements the city with bus service linking further outside the city to the rest of Metro Detroit and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport.

DDOT bus service runs from 4 a.m. to 1 a.m. on the busiest corridors and principal arteries such as Woodward Avenue (where the route 53 is the most heavily used in the system),[4] Gratiot Avenue, Grand River Avenue and Jefferson Avenue. Otherwise, most other routes run between 5 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday, while Sunday service starts approximately 7 a.m. and ends between 8 and 9 p.m.[5]

History[edit]

The DDOT began its life as the Department of Street Railways (DSR) in 1922 after the acquisition of the privately owned Detroit United Railway (DUR), which had controlled much of Detroit's mass transit operations since its incorporation in 1901.[6] The DSR added bus service when it created the Motorbus Division in 1925. At the height of its operation in 1941, the DSR operated 20 streetcar lines with 910 streetcars.[7] By 1952, only four streetcar lines remained: Woodward, Grand River, Michigan and Jefferson. Streetcar services was discontinued in April 1956 with the decommissioning of the Woodward line. The DSR formally became the DDOT in 1974 under the Detroit City Charter.[8]

Between 2009 and 2012, the system's seven remaining limited and express bus routes were discontinued.[9] Starting January 1, 2012, management of DDOT was contracted out to Parsons Brinckerhoff, an engineering and management firm. The firm subsequently subcontracted the management of the system to Envisurage, LLC a consultancy run by the former CEO of the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority.[10][11] On March 3, 2012, 24-hour service was discontinued, and other weekday and weekend routes and services were pared down, or eliminated entirely, in an attempt to produce savings for the department.[12] In August 2013, management of DDOT was contracted out to MV Transportation under the direction of Paul Toliver until September 2014. Dan Dirks was appointed director of the department by mayor Mike Duggan on January 9, 2014 for the duration of MV Transportation's contract.[13]

Detroit Downtown Trolley[edit]

The Detroit Downtown Trolley (originally the Detroit Citizen's Railway) was a heritage trolley built in 1976 as a U.S. Bicentennial project.[14] The trolley ran over a one-mile L-shaped route from Grand Circus Park to near the Renaissance Center, via Washington Boulevard and Jefferson Avenue, using narrow-gauge trams acquired from municipal rail services outside the U.S. Most of the Detroit cars that saw service from 1976 to 2003 had been acquired from Lisbon, Portugal. Many Detroiters old enough to remember streetcar service from before 1956 were delighted with the nod to nostalgia that the service represented, but lack of downtown business activity in downtown Detroit meant that ridership of the Downtown Trolley never became more than a novelty and declined to only about 3000 per year in the late 1990s; service was suspended in June 2003.[15]

Rosa Parks Transit Center[edit]

Rosa Parks Transit Center

The Rosa Parks Transit Center is a 25,700 square feet (2,400 m2) building and a 2.4 acres (0.97 ha; 0.0038 sq mi) site with 15 bus bays. It serves as a major transfer point for both buses and, via Michigan Avenue Station, the Detroit People Mover.[17] The site features seven large white fabric canopies which hang over the bus transfer area.

The center was designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff and was completed in July 2009.
