  • Can you park your car on the Detroit side and ride the bus through the tunnel

    Answer Report Abuse
    • I guess you can park your car in Detroit and then take the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel Bus. But, it is recommended to ask the locals around just to confirm.

  • I plan on traveling from the Amtrak -Detroit station(w.Baltimore Ave) to the Via-Windsor(Walker Rd). What is the schedule & price for taking the tunnel bus? is there a public transit service from the Amtrak station to the tunnel?

    Answer Report Abuse
    • The tunnel buses are scheduled to depart every ten minutes between your chosen destinations. The fare for a single ride through the tunnel costs USD 5 per person. Buses 461 and 462 serve between W Baltimore Ave and Walker Rd. Hope this is helpful!
