It's not a bad tunnel, very short. the worst of it crossing from the Detroit side to Canada on a Friday. The Line is very long, over one hour! The bridge is much quicker. Candian border Staff was very pleasant.

If in Windsor take the tunnel bus to downtown Detroit...absolutely perfect for going to a Tiger game...or Lion game. $10 return. Drops you off 5 minutes from stadiums.

Caught the bus at the Detroit entrance to the tunnel. Only $5. Quick trip through the tunnel and easy access to Windsor via Canadian Customs. Must have passport. Return trip later just as convenient. Both bus drivers friendly and helpful.

Our cruise ship was docked on the Windsor, Ontario side of the river, and so we had to go through the tunnel twice for our visits to Detroit. The tunnel is clean and light -- the only real issue is that you have to stop...More

This is a $5.00 bus ride to and from Canada via the under the river tunnel. Pick up the bus in Detroit at various stops, definitely a bus stop just before the toll booths that is glass enclosed. Return from where they drop you off....More

I wish we had a choice but the family that runs it doesn't seem to care about service since they have no competition Sad really

It's a tunnel. It gets you from one country to the other fairly efficiently. It's under the river. An alternative to the bridge.

I don't see why not, buses go through many times a day. Now, do be aware that you will have to go through the Canadian checkpoint - you may be asked many more questions and require additional paperwork.

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!

Best of my knowledge, no. Tunnel Bus will take you / drop you off at the Cobo Center. Casino possibilities - Motor City Casino or the Greektown Casino - can be reached by a short taxi ride.
