Located at Michigan and Cass Avenues, the Rosa Parks Transit Center is a 25,000-square-foot indoor facility with over two acres of exterior transit access. It enables customers to make connections to 21 DDOT bus routes, the SMART suburban bus system, Transit Windsor for international connections, and taxi access in a single downtown transportation hub. It also provides pedestrian connectivity to the Detroit People Mover stations at Michigan and Times Square, and was planned to eventually connect to the city’s future light rail transit system.

You can learn how the Transit Center fits into a wider plan for transforming Detroit’s transportation system from Tushar Advani of Parsons Brinkerhoff — one of the architects behind the Rosa Parks Transit Center.
