Ride SMART Through Construction This Summer!

Friday, April 20, 2018/Categories: SMART News, Featured Homepage News

Starting Friday night, parts of I-696 Westbound will be closed. This is a long-term project that will extend through the summer and into fall with I-696 not expected to open until at least November. While Eastbound I-696 will still be open, additional traffic can be expected throughout the area, making this the perfect time to try out SMART! 

SMART offers several crosstown routes that can easily navigate you around the closed patch of I-696. Don’t worry about rerouting your commute, sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic, or adding the wear and tear to your vehicle. When you ride SMART, we handle the detours and watch the road so you can relax!

Crosstown Routes
Use these routes to get from Harper Road to Haggerty, moving around the construction on I-696. Check out our online schedule page as well!  
740 – 12 Mile Cross Town   
760 - 13/14 Mile Cross Town 
780 - 15 Mile Cross Town 

You can also use these routes to connect to FAST Gratiot or FAST Woodward, limited-stop routes that feature free WiFi making for an even more comfortable ride! Learn more about FAST options on our webpage.

We understand that new detours can be stressful, especially during morning commutes. Use our Trip Planner to track your entire trip to find the best bus routes to get you where you need to go!  Or call Customer Service to talk with a representative at 866.962.5515.
