Powered by Biofuels

We’re aware that we as a country need to move to more renewable energy sources in our everyday transportation for a fistful of reasons. While biodiesel isn’t the final answer in this ever-growing issue, it is readily available and making change today. From the very start, we’ll be pushing into new propulsion methods, new fuels and new energy storage technologies with real world testing. The next bus you get on may not burn any fuel at all.

Live Mobile Bus Tracking

Most of the difficulty of using a bus system is getting on the right bus at the right time. We eliminate this issue by having a free, easy-to-use mobile app for all smartphones showing the exact locations of our buses at that very moment and the routes they follow. You’ll be able to plan your boarding time to within a minute, minimizing your time left waiting outside and more time to do what you enjoy doing.


Flexible Routing

Currently in testing, our flexible routing system will go far beyond what you thought possible with a public transit system. During times of low demand, you’ll be able to request the bus come nearer – or even pick you up right where you stand – straight from the free tracking app. This will be another first in mass transit for The Detroit Bus Company.
