Trinity Transportation Group is offering shuttle service between the Detroit airport and downtown hotels for $30 each way. To reserve your shuttle service, call 877-284-4200, choose option 1 and ask for the shuttle department.
You may book one-way our round-trip service, but you must call in advance to reserve your seat. If you have a group arriving on the same flight, Trinity will book a larger shuttle or bus to accommodate the group and will negotiate a group rate.
Trinity works much like other shuttle services: If passengers are arriving on different flights that land within 30 minutes of each other, the driver will wait for all passengers and then take them to their respective hotels.
Return shuttle service from downtown hotels works the same way. Pick-up depends on your flight’s scheduled departure time, and the driver may stop at other hotels to pick up passengers with similar flight times.
