Back on Oct. 13, I mentioned a late-night party bus service that takes customers from the Detroit suburbs to downtown nightspots. Wow, I thought, that would be a real boon to midtown nightlife.

Send a note about this to firstname.lastname@example.org. Maybe someone will take note.
- OK. That's not really likely. But if you don't let them know, you know they'll never think of it themselves.
While your idea of the businesses’ benefitting from this service subsidizing its operation is quite possible, RT is precluded by Federal law from operating charter services. However, you may want to pursue this idea with the various associations of downtown and central city establishments who could hire a private bus company.Let's assume for argument sake that there really is a law that prevents RT from operating charter services. That's certainly a law we could do without.
