This route services Biddle Avenue between Eureka Road and the Ecorse River, West Jefferson Avenue between the Ecorse River and Southfield Road, Southfield Road between West Jefferson Avenue and Allen Road, Allen Road between Southfield Road and Outer Drive, Outer Drive between Laurence Street and Fairlane Drive, Fairlane Drive between Outer Drive and Oakwood Boulevard, Oakwood Boulevard between Fairlane Drive and Michigan Avenue and Michigan Avenue between Oakwood Boulevard and the John D.

- September 4, 2007 - Route introduced, replacing a large portion of route 185 along with parts of route 250.
- December 12, 2011 - Due to systemwide service cuts, weekend service is eliminated.
- April 6, 2015 - After SMART is permitted into the John D. Dingell Transit Center, route 250 replaces route 140 between the Transit Center and Fairlane Town Center. At the same time, direct service to the Henry Ford Museum is eliminated.
- March 23, 2020 - Routing in Dearborn is changed to use Oakwood Boulevard between Beech Street and Michigan Avenue rather than Monroe Street. Half of this new routing had already been in use as a detour routing since 2017 due to the closure of parts of Monroe for building construction, and was also proposed as part of the SMART Path Plan.
