The Official Public Transit Partner of the 2019 Detroit Jazz Festival

For the first time ever, SMART is serving as the official transportation partner to the Detroit Jazz Festival. The festival is celebrating its 40th year and we're happy to work together to solve the parking frustration that is building around Detroit, as the city becomes busier.

SMART's FAST Michigan route, which launched in January 2018, is a limited-stop service that picks up and drops off at the both terminal at the Detroit Metro Airport. The service runs early mornings, late nights, and weekends, making it easy for any plane schedule, and the $2 fare makes it an easy decision to get to and from the airport to downtown.

Information can be picked up at the main booth at the Detroit Jazz Festival or at the Detroit Jazz Festival both at the Detroit Metro Airport.

How it works:

  • Board a bus marked FAST and pay your $2 fare
    You can bring as many bags as you can carry!
  • As you arrive at the stop pull the cord to alert your driver
    Don't forget to Thank your driver!
