Transportation from Airport to Downtown

Dear Detroiters, what is the most cost effective way of getting from the airport to downtown, specifically Greektown? Are there express busses or shuttles that would be less costly than a cab? What would a cab cost?

And of course...back to the airport from Greektown.

Thanks for your help.

Sorry, but there are no shuttles or express buses. Taxi is $41 each way, plus tip.

There is a city bus (route 125 Fort-Eureka). See www.smartbus.org. The website isn't the most user-friendly, but will give you schedule information. Route 125 doesn't stop in Greektown; you will either have to walk 10 minutes or take the Detroit People Mover from the Route 125.

Unfortunately your cheapest option would probably be to rent a car. A cab will run you around $100 for roundtrip from DTW to Greektown.

If you are staying in Greektown you should inquire with your accomodation to see if they have a shuttle or a discount program through a local transporation provider (e.g., Metro Cars, etc.)

Thanks everyone...no shuttle with the hotel, so will plan on the cab option.

Again, thanks for your time.
