This route primarily services West Jefferson Avenue between Coolidge Highway and Outer Drive, Fort Street between Outer Drive and Eureka Road and Eureka Road between Fort Street and John D. Dingell Drive. This route services the Southland Center Hub and has two branches splitting at Eureka and Middlebelt Roads servicing Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. During peak/rush hours on weekdays only, this route continues past Coolidge Highway to downtown Detroit.

History

  • 1976 - Route introduced as a Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority route, replacing the Southland Center branch of route 110. Initially, it is operated as one of three branches of SEMTA's Fort Street route, the others being a branch to Flat Rock (numbered 120) and a branch that loops via Riverview neighborhoods (numbered 130). This branch operates from Eureka and Inkster Roads in Taylor north into downtown Detroit via Eureka Road, Southland Center and Fort Street.
  • January 17, 1989 - Service carried on by SMART.
  • June 25, 1994 - Service taken over by the Detroit Department of Transportation in a route-swapping deal. As a result, it is now operated almost exclusively by New Flyer Industries D40 and Motor Coach Industries TC40-102A buses, as at the time these were DDOT's only buses equipped with electronic destination signs. Window cards were used when GMDD TC40-102N and RTS buses were assigned, since they still had rollsigns instead.
  • April 1, 1995 - DDOT gives control of this route back to SMART.
  • December 11, 1995 - Midday, evening and weekend service rerouted from Fort and Outer Drive to Fort and Waterman Street via Outer Drive, West Jefferson and Waterman, replacing service on route 110, which becomes a weekday-rush-hour-only route. Weekday rush hour service, however, remains on Fort between Outer Drive and Waterman.
  • May 20, 2002 - Service extended from Eureka and Inkster to Metro Airport's LC Smith Terminal via Eureka, Middlebelt, Goddard and Rogell Drive, replacing portions of the newly-discontinued route 165.
  • November 27, 2006 - Service to the McNamara Terminal added, operating via Eureka and Dingell Drive. Alternating trips operate every half-hour all day to either the McNamara Terminal or the Smith Terminal. In addition, later evening service on all days is added.
  • December 3, 2006 - Sunday service modified to begin earlier.
  • September 4, 2007 - All service now operates between Fort and Outer Drive and Fort and West End Street via Outer Drive, West Jefferson and West End. Not only does this continue service lost by the discontinuation of route 110, it also crosses over from West Jefferson to Fort even closer to the Detroit city limits.
  • September 2008 - Smith Terminal stop relocates to the North Terminal.
  • December 12, 2011 - Due to systemwide service cuts, outside of peak/rush hours on weekdays only, service now terminates at West Jefferson and Coolidge.
  • May 2013 - Service rerouted between West Jefferson and Coolidge and Fort and West End via Coolidge and Fort after the West Jefferson Rouge River bridge is damaged as it lowered while a freighter was passing through and is closed as a result.
  • Summer 2013 - Rouge River detour rerouted via I-75 between Fort and Springwells after the Fort Street Rouge River bridge also closes-albeit due to scheduled construction. As of December 31, 2015, the Fort Street Rouge River bridge has reopened, but the I-75 detour was still in place.
  • September 5, 2016 - Following the reopening of the West Jefferson Rouge River bridge in August, the detour is discontinued and the original routing via Jefferson and West End is resumed.
  • February 4, 2019 - A stop at the onramp from Goddard Road to Rogell Drive at the Sky Chef entrance is added, serving only southbound buses. Passengers at this stop intending to travel northbound are allowed to ride southbound buses for free to the North Terminal, after which they must pay the appropriate fare.
