Unfortunately, Detroit is not known for accessible public transportation (a topic which will likely be coming up in our discussions during DART). If you are traveling in from out of town and will not have access to a vehicle locally, please let us know where you will be staying once you've booked your accommodations. We will do our best to help connect you with others interested in ridesharing/carpool options for Saturday to and from DART 2017. Contact us at [email protected].
Ridesharing apps like Lyft and Uber are currently often the most reliable/cost-effective ways to travel in Detroit.
We will be hosting a MuslimARC Meetup Brunch on Sunday! If you're interested, please join the #Detroit channel in Slack for details, and book your travel accordingly for later on Sunday if possible.
