Belle Isle Grand Prix transportation plan unveiled

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix officials have announced the transportation plan for the May 31 - June 2 event.

With no public Grand Prix parking available at Belle Isle Park during race weekend, the event will feature a comprehensive and detailed transportation plan that will once again include luxury buses and an expanded ferry service to Belle Isle.

The Q-itUp! Grand Prix Shuttles powered by XYQ will transport many of the expected crowd of 100,000 plus fans that will visit the Grand Prix. Over 100 buses will be used throughout the race weekend to provide first-class transportation for Grand Prix guests and participants.

As part of the Transportation Center powered by XYQ, guests will be transported from the designated stops by luxury coaches and school buses to Belle Isle (see attached map and information). The buses will run from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m., Friday-Sunday, and fans can be picked up from the designated spots all three days at the Cobo Hall Roof, Joe Louis Arena parking deck, and Marina Lots located near Atwater and Orleans.

On Saturday and Sunday only, street level parking will be available in the lots east of the GM Renaissance Center and the Renaissance Center parking decks at Beaubien, Port Atwater and Franklin Street. Adults can ride the buses round trip for $10, while children 12 and under cost $5 and every bus will stop at each designated parking lot. Parking is $5 per vehicle at the marina lots and $10 per vehicle at Cobo Roof, Joe Louis Arena, GM Renaissance Center area lots and all parking decks.
