History

[1]

  • October 26, 1921 - Service begins as a streetcar route operated by the city of Detroit, operating from Russell and Colby Streets, north of East Grand Boulevard (that intersection no longer exists, with Russell now an Interstate 75 service drive), operating along Russell (I-75), Owen Street, Clairmount Street and Joy Road to Grand River Avenue.
  • Early 1922 - Service extended westward after the city seizes control of streetcar tracks on Joy and Epworth Street from Detroit United Railway. A joint-operating agreement later extends service south along Junction Street and east along East Milwaukee Street.
  • 1922 - Service carried on by Detroit Street Railway.
  • 1925 - Service extended eastward along Harper Avenue to Gratiot Avenue, merging with the former Saint Jean streetcar route. Route is renamed Clairmount-Saint Jean.
  • 1927 - Route name reverts back to Clairmount.
  • October 1949 - Streetcar service along Junction replaced by shuttle buses after the tracks along Junction and 35th Streets are removed and never replaced during the construction of the Edsel Ford Freeway (Interstate 94).
  • July 29, 1951 - Streetcar service ends permanently, with buses now operating along the entire route.
  • July 1, 1974 - Service carried on by DDOT.
  • 1980 - Service rerouted from East Grand Boulevard and Hamtramck Drive and Mount Elliott Street and Harper Avenue via East Grand Boulevard and the I-94 service drive due to the neighborhood in between being completely demolished for a General Motors plant.
  • 2012 - Service east of Woodward discontinued.
  • February 8, 2014 - Service east of Woodward resumes during weekday rush hours.
