To Work Service (SMART / D-DOT Riders)

Livonia Community Transit (LCT) provides "To Work" service for passengers coming into Livonia from the SMART and D-DOT bus systems. It operates similar to a fixed route where passengers are shuttled to and from the SMART and D-DOT locations to selected Livonia bus stops. SMART and D-DOT locations are considered "hubs". The "To Work" program operates Monday through Friday only. There is no weekend service and service is not available on major holidays. 

Reservations are not necessary to use this service, however, some pickup locations in the afternoon are designated as "Call First" stops.  Pickups from these stops require advanced notification.

smart & d-DOT Hubs

The SMART hub is located on Grand River Avenue just northwest of Eight Mile Road. SMART passengers can connect to LCT by using route number 305/330. The D-DOT hub is located behind Costco, near I-96 and Middle Belt Road.  D-DOT passengers can connect to LCT by using route number 38. These two hubs are the only locations to transfer from SMART or D-DOT. The LCT bus will pick up from both hubs at 6 a.m., 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Return trips are at 4 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. There is no mid-day service. 

"To work" Fares

The cost per ride is $2 each way. Drivers do not carry cash and cannot make change. Riders using the D-DOT system can transfer to and from LCT at a cost of .25 cents. Transfers cannot be used with SMART.

smart & d-Dot schedules

Because bus routes can change, it is recommended that you check with SMART and D-DOT for up-to-date route information before planning your trip to Livonia. LCT is not responsible for knowing detailed SMART or D-DOT bus routes and schedules.
