DETROIT — Detroit is adding 24-hour bus service on three major routes starting later this month.
The Detroit Department of Transportation says service changes and improvements will take effect on more than 15 bus routes on Jan. 23.
There will be new schedule times, additional destinations and 24-hour service on three major routes: No. 53 Woodward, No. 34 Gratiot and No. 21 Grand River.
DDOT Director Dan Dirks says in a statement that officials "received countless requests for better night service, frequent peak-hour service and more reliable schedules." The changes include reconfiguration of bus routes in northeast Detroit and neighboring Harper Woods.
A series of public meetings seeking input took place ahead of the changes. An event is Tuesday evening at the Rosa Parks Transit Center to discuss updates.
