  1. If the Tunnel Bus does get a number under these guidelines, hopefully it shouldn't be numbered 610, 615, 620, and 635, as these numbers are already in use by SMART routes across the river (and thus create conversations like "I'm gonna take the 615 to the 31 to the 615").
  2. Looks like two Detroit People Mover stations were renamed after its recent reopening from a COVID-related closure: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Detroit_Transportation_Corporation_Convention_Center_Station to Detroit Transportation Corporation Huntington Place Station https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Detroit_Transportation_Corporation_Joe_Louis_Arena_Station to Detroit Transportation Corporation West Riverfront Station
  3. A judge in Oakland County has ruled that Auburn Hills must stay in SMART, throwing a wrench in the city's plans to opt out. https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/oakland/2022/05/18/auburn-hills-smart-bus-millage/9810236002/
  4. Despite public opposition, Auburn Hills has officially resolved to opt out of SMART.
  5. Auburn Hills may be opting out of SMART, replacing it with a seniors- and people-with-disabilities-only system, despite overwhelming approval for SMART among the city's residents, with 74% voting for renewal in 2018. An opt-out would also sever the Flint MTA connection that exists at Great Lakes Crossing. https://wdet.org/2022/02/18/auburn-hills-to-vote-on-whether-to-opt-out-of-smart/
  6. The Tunnel Bus fare will double once it resumes service. https://www.iheartradio.ca/am800/news/tunnel-bus-fare-doubling-when-service-resumes-1.16570202
  7. As of November 15th, DDOT has modified service due to driver shortages. The 11, 26 and 47 have been suspended, along with parts of the 38 and 43. Other routes are operating on reduced schedules.
  8. 4001 was one of several SMART artics that were in service today. Since last month, a few more SMART artics have gone into service, including 4016-4019, which can be seen on Macomb routes. Interior photos of these artics:
  9. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_4001-a.jpg SMART 4001, a 2021 New Flyer XD60, is seen here operating route 261 FAST Michigan in downtown Detroit on August 18, 2021. SMART is placing 23 XD60s into service as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing ridership.
  10. Likely because CBSA isn't letting Canadian visitors into the US by land yet, and since this is a Canadian transit agency...
  11. They will be placed into service in May. The order will be evenly split between the terminals, and each terminal will assign half to FAST and half to local service.
  12. Route 305, like the 525, is also a revival of a previously-discontinued route, though this incarnation does not serve downtown.
  13. Please rename this page: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_route_280_'Middlebelt_South' to Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation route 280 'Western Wayne Crosstown'
  14. Can I please get a username change to 140 Southshore? Thanks.

  16.

  17. Service has stopped due to a labor dispute. https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/local/2020/10/02/ddot-bus-service-stops-due-to-driver-labor-dispute/
  18. The next round of Path-related service changes has been schedule for October 5. https://www.smartbus.org/About/News/october-5th-service-changes The Telegraph route will be split into two - 275 from Southland Mall to Tel-Twelve Mall, and 375 from the Amazon facility at the Silverdome site to the Meijer at Grand River and McNichols. The 462 FAST Woodward will be extended to Great Lakes Crossing along the 753's existing route. The 760 will be extended to Tel-Twelve. The 752 will become the 790 Pontiac Crosstown and will continue east past downtown Pontiac to downtown Auburn Hills, the Silverdome Amazon facility and Oakland University. Instead of Oakland University, the 756 will serve Centerpoint Parkway as the 796. Additionally, New Flyer XD60 artics will be delivered next spring, purchased from a contract with the commonwealth of Virginia.
  19. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Detroit_Department_of_Transportation_route_23_'Hamilton' should be renamed to Detroit Department of Transportation route 23 'Hamilton/John R'.
  20. SMART is obviously now running on a rear-door boarding policy and free service. Route 515 has been suspended, while routes with Saturday service are operating on Saturday schedules.
  21. A Detroit People Mover Mark I train at Grand Circus Park station in 2016. On March 1, 2020, the People Mover reverted back to counter-clockwise operation on a full-time basis after having operated clockwise since 2008. (already uploaded to the wiki: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Detroit_Transportation_Corporation_06-a.jpg )
  22. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_3901-39xx should be renamed to Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation 3901-3938.
  23. 2019 SMART Gillig BRT 3902, which recently entered service at the end of September 2019, is seen here on a layover at the Taylor Meijer store awaiting departure on a northbound 275. (already uploaded to the wiki: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_3902-a.jpg )
