WayneRides is Wayne State University's one-stop shop for all things transportation in and around Detroit. We're here to make transportation as simple and accessible as possible for WSU students, faculty, staff and neighbors.
COVID-19 is impacting transportation services across the region. As of 8/31/2020, DDOT (city buses) and SMART (suburban buses) are operating fare-free.* The QLINE streetcar has suspended operations. MoGo has expanded its system; bikes are available for a fee (see below). Stay up to date with service changes by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also find updated service changes from our partners at Transportation Riders United (TRU) here.
Remember that you should only ride transit for essential needs such as going to work or class, getting groceries or going to the hospital.
*When DDOT, SMART or the QLINE streetcar resume charging fares, Wayne State will provide students with free 31-Day Dart passes via The W Food Pantry. The passes are activated upon use and good for unlimited rides on all three (3) systems for 31 days.
