The waterfront community of Harrison Township, just up the river on Lake St. Clair, has come up with a great idea to bring tourist dollars to its business’s. If approved they plan to offer free SMART bus rides from homes and marinas to shopping areas, restaurants, bars and churches. Without getting into the details, this is an idea long overdue in the D’. Wouldn’t it be nice to drive downtown and then know that we have free rides to all areas of the Central Business District, the Cultural Center and possibly even Windsor? With grants from SMART’s Community Parnership Program and money from the transit fund, Detroit would not have to dig into its own pockets. That’s alot cheaper than $200 million to extend the DPM.
