History

[1]

  • September 4, 1974 - Route begins service after a merger of the former Oakman and West Chicago bus routes. The new route, the first local route launched after Detroit Street Railway became DDOT, operated from Orangelawn and Burt to East Nevada and Mount Elliott Streets via Burt Road, West Chicago Street, Oakman Boulevard, Ewald Circle, Davison Street, Joseph Campau Street and East Nevada Street. Night service continued eastward to Van Dyke Street.
  • 1989 - Service along East Nevada Street is replaced by a rerouted route 10 Chene and now ends at Joseph Campau and McNichols.
  • 1996 - Service is rerouted via Woodrow Wilson Street eastbound/Rosa Parks Boulevard westbound, Glendale Street, Hamilton Avenue eastbound/3rd Street westbound, Manchester Parkway and Oakland Street due to the closure of the Davison Freeway (which the route traversed between Woodrow Wilson and 3rd) for reconstruction. Initially, this detour is temporary, but eventually becomes permanent even after the Davison Freeway reopens in 1997 since the detour served shopping centers at Woodward Avenue and Manchester Parkway.
