How much does it cost to ride?

The Downtown D-Line is always FREE to ride.


What is the Downtown D-Line?

This service operates year-round and is great for getting out during the workday or travelling across downtown without worrying about walking long distances or parking. Stops are serviced every 15 minutes.  It runs around the west side of Western Gateway Park, travelling east on Locust St. through Downtown, and into the East Village. The route than loops back around at E 6th St. and travels west along Grand Ave. On the nights of the 80/35 Music festival, the route is shortened on the west side and turns on 10th St. back onto Locust.

  • Arrive at your bus stop early and make sure the driver can see you.
  • We know 80/35 makes you want to get up and dance, but please remain seated on the bus while it is in motion. If you must stand, hold on to the handrails.
