Metro Detroit's regional transit system, SMART, recently released plans for a new express system to get citizens to their destinations faster than the typical bus route. Dubbed the FAST system, it will now be possible to board the bus at one point and not get off until the final location with no stops in-between.
Even more impressive, these limited-stop routes will provide better access better access from residential areas to the inner city, seven days a week, still for the same fare of $2.
SMART and DDOT buses act as transportation to these FAST bus stops as well, which gives citizens the chance to reach their destination when there is not a FAST stop near them.
The main routes are FAST Gratiot, FAST Woodward, FAST Michigan, and several stops in the Downtown area. The maps provided are easy to follow and travel straight into the center of the city.
FAST provides transportation to and from main landmarks such as the Detroit Metropolitan Airport, Detroit Zoo, Phoenix Center, Troy Civic Center, St. Joseph Hospital, Midtown and the Dearborn Transit Center.
FAST Woodward extends to areas as far as Pontiac and Troy, leading people to their jobs, entertainment opportunities, food and shopping with just one stop.
Free Wi-Fi will also be provided.
