We spent the night in Windsor and took the Tunnel bus over to Detroit. It was a virtually painless experience. Stop at boarder crossing to get through customs and into Detroit. I would do again

Depending on time of day, there can be a long line getting through customs. And it can be an even longer wait if you pick a customs line that does not move.

2016-August-05 Although much is written and said of the Ambassador Bridge, I believe the best cross-border transit option is the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel. Owned by the City of Detroit and City of Windsor, the DW Tunnel links downtown Detroit to downtown Windsor. If you are planning...More

The tunnel it self is a marvel. Surrounded by water and the tunnel holds it all back to make it possible for a easy trip to Windsor. You know the tunnel is protected by Armed Personnel so make sure your papers are in order and...More

The tricky part is getting to the shuttle. We parked in a lot at Fort and Cass which was about a block from he Tunnel Bus stop. You'll need exact change, and the Windsor Transit day pass it NOT applicable. You'll need to clear customs...More

We take the tunnel to the casino in Windsor once a month. It is convenient and quick and doesn't put money in the bridge owner's pockets. We don't like returning from Canada through the tunnel because sometimes there is a backup at customs and we...More

Allow plenty of time and be sure you have passports in order. If you get pulled over for inspection it will take even longer. Have a great time!
