The Qline

Come with us as we ride north on Woodward on the Qline. The first stop closest to the riverfront is Congress and that's where we got on. Getting the ticket was a very complicated deal and we had the help of a woman who seemed to know all about it....even though it was her first time on the line. $1.50 for 3 hours.
Detroit skyline with Rencen in the background.
FYI: the voice that does all the announcements on the Qline is non other than Carman Harlen.
Across the street from the Guardian Building is this pub where, after we got off. we stopped and had a fabulous hamburger!
The Z.... the garage that we parked in for a mere $20 for about 2hours....Yikes!
Comerica Park....a game that day...so sad that our Tigers are having a very bad season.

 Don't know what this building is but it looks like it may have been a private residence (mansion) at one time.
 We went by the Detroit Medical Center and the DIA as well as the Wayne State campus area.
 The Majestic.
The Fisher building.
The line ends in The New Center area at East Grand Blvd. We had to get off here and take the train going south.....next up.

Public Transportation, Then and Now




The Village Life

These are two of the horses that pull the Omnibus that I usually catch after having lunch. I either take it to the cover bridge and then take the train or if I'm in a hurry take the omnibus up front so I can leave. Public transportation saves me steps.




The law.
