Types of Service

  1. The Tunnel Bus operates on a published scheduled.
  2. Service to all concerts and home games at Comerica Park is provided by the Special Event bus.  However, service is not provided to "all day" concerts/events, as we cannot operate buses on a continuous back-and-forth manner. (Example: Hoedown at Comerica Park.)   
  3. All trips on the published tunnel schedule are fully accessible.  Visit the published schedule web page

The tunnel fare may be paid in either Canadian or American funds, however, no exchange is given.  View detailed fare structure.

The Basics

  • Transit Windsor operates a cross-border service through the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel, seven days a week.
  • Proof of citizenship is required when crossing the international Windsor-Detroit border. 
  • Buses leave from the Windsor International Transit Terminal at 300 Chatham Street West. 
  • Many parking options are available near the terminal.  Municipal Lot #22 is located one block away at Bruce and University.  A parking garage is located on the east side of the building.  View parking rates for Municipal Lots or for street meters, or access a map of municipal lots and garages. 
  • You may bring luggage or any item that you can comfortably carry on the bus with you.  The items must not impede the safety of other passengers.  All items must be carried off the bus and taken through customs.
  • Bikes: Due to licensing regulations, bike racks cannot be deployed during Tunnel Bus services, including transportation to Comerica Park or Ford Field.  You may disassemble your bike and board the bus with it in a bike bag.  Note:  If the bus is full, bringing the bike bag on board is allowed only at the discretion of the driver.
