The Pistons Express was a specialized shuttle bus route operated by the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation in metropolitan Detroit, Michigan, United States.

Route Details

[1]

This route travelled on Woodward Avenue from Congress Street in downtown Detroit as far north as Eight Mile Road with five intermediate stops. This route then proceeded east to Interstate 75 and took it north to the Palace of Auburn Hills. The package cost $16 total, with a $2.00 one-way fare each way and a $12 discount game ticket. No transfers or SMART or Detroit Department of Transportation passes were accepted other than the Value Passes. Upon reaching the Palace, drivers issued each passenger a transfer that was to be shown at the box office. Buses left the Palace 30 minutes after the end of the game from the West Parking Lot and served the same six stops in reverse.

History

The route ran between the 2002-03 and 2005-06 Detroit Pistons seasons.
