Lunch Loop

Downtown Detroit and the Renaissance Center are just a couple of the amazing destinations in Detroit.  That’s why we’re offering the Lunch Loop, a free charter bus running on a continuous loop from the Atwater Street entrance near the Marriott Motor Lobby  to a different Detroit neighborhood each day. 

Lunch loop buses will run between the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. each day.  Just show the driver or transportation volunteer your conference badge and hop on!

Sunday

Detroit Renaissance Center - Midtown: Over two million visitors come to Midtown annually to experience the largest concentration of cultural, educational and medical institutions in southeast Michigan including the Detroit Institute of Arts, Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, and Wayne State University. Midtown is also home to 80 restaurants.  This route will include two stops, one closest to the cultural center, and the other near Midtown’s many dining options. Pick up every 20 minutes.

Monday

Detroit Renaissance Center - Mexican Town: Mexicantown is a place where vibrantly colored buildings, decorated with even brighter murals and hand-painted signs, dot the main thoroughfares of Bagley and Vernor Streets. One might guess there are more restaurants per square foot than any other neighborhood in Detroit -- but the smell of fresh tortillas and baked goods floating down the street provide the only proof. Pick up every 20 minutes.

Tuesday

Detroit Renaissance Center - Eastern Market: Each week thousands of people flock to Eastern Market for its Saturday Market to enjoy one of the most authentic urban adventures in the United States. The market and the adjacent district are rare finds in a global economy - a local food district with more than 250 independent vendors and merchants processing, wholesaling, and retailing food. Pick up every 10 minutes.
