I have waited years for this and it's finally here.
Blue Water Transportation now services Meijer's at 23 mile and Gratiot. You can now travel all the way to Port Huron from Detroit for $2.25. ($1.50 on Smart, $.75 for Blue Water).
There are two new routes: an M-29 route that follows the river or an I-94 Express route that will get you there in about 30 minutes.Here is their website: http://www.bwbus.com/

How the hell does it take 30 minutes to get from Marysville to New Baltimore, without stopping?
Eesh, using both services, 1:50 to Detroit. I'll pass...that sort of distance is way too far for local bus service. WAY too far.

If you really want to take your time, you can take it from Port Huron down the St. Clair River through St. Clair, Marine City, Algonac and then west through Fair Haven and New Baltimore to 23 Mile and Gratiot. Going that way it might take 4 hours to get downtown. I haven't seen many riders on this route, but I've only passed the bus a couple of times.

Prices given are wrong. From Port Huron to Detroit is $0.75, as the Blue Water Transit driver for a transfer (free) and SMART will accept it for up to two rides. From Detroit to Port Huron is $1.50 plus $0.25 for a transfer which the Blue Water Transit driver will accept.
This is not quick but it is inexpensive compared to a quarter tank of $3.35 gas.
If you are coming from Port Huron or Marysville of course you would use the quicker service. The other one exists because without it there is no way to get from the St. Clair River communities to either PH or the Detroit area at all.

Recently I have been out in Port Huron a lot lately. There bus service for a town of that size is impressive. Much better than Detroits and only a fraction of the size. They have good stops, maps, service and more. If Port Huron can do it...why not Detroit?
