DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit Department of Transportation passengers are giving the thumbs-up to the recently created “415 Plan” aimed at increasing service on some of the city’s busiest routes.
The Grand River route is one of the four busiest routes that DDOT operates.
Callub Rutker who rides the Grand River bus spoke with WWJ’s Mike Campbell about the newly implemented plan.
“The Grand River bus is about the quickest bus,” he said.
Rutker says he can count on the bus to get to his job, which has been a source of contention for some who count on the bus a their main source of transportation to and from work.
“It’s doing pretty good,” said David Usher of Detroit. “The best that could be expected – for how things are.”
Other riders told WWJ that the Grand River bus runs about every 11-12 minutes and say that’s better than it was in the past and they appreciate the consistent schedule.
The ’415 Plan’ and includes four major routes: Gratiot, Grand River, Dexter and Woodward. Buses are to run every 15 minutes during peak ride hours (mainly morning and afternoon rush hours).
