BY BUS OR BOAT: In Detroit, Mike Brudenell notes Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix organizers yesterday “announced a more streamlined transportation plan from the heart of the city to the Raceway at Belle Isle Park for the IZOD IndyCar Series weekend” on May 31-June 2. Ferries will “operate on half-hour intervals,” while about “100 luxury buses also are available to carry passengers all three days from designated spots on the Cobo Hall Roof and the Joe Louis Arena parking deck and from marina lots near Atwater and Orleans streets.” No public parking “is allowed on Belle Isle during race week.” The upgraded ferry service -- this year “it features two ferries instead of one like in 2012 -- will cost $10 round-trip for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.” Buses will charge “adults $10 for a round-trip ticket and $5 for children 12 and under” (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 5/16). In Detroit, Tom Greenwood notes the “only way on and off Belle Isle for the running of the Grand Prix races will be by bus or ferry boat” (DETROIT NEWS, 5/16).
