Two Women Challenge SMART Board & SMART General Manager to Ride the SMART Bus

Thursday, January 26 at 2pm
SMART Administrative Office 6th Floor Board Room; 535 Griswold; Suite 600; Detroit, MI

Melissa Damaschke, Detroit resident
Julie Funke, Royal Oak resident

Outraged by the cuts in services by SMART, Two Women, Four Wheels will provide public comment challenging the SMART Board of Directors and General Manager to ride the SMART bus with them into or out of Detroit during their defined “off-peak” hours. Two Women, Four Wheels hopes that by experiencing the inconvenience of commuting between two separate bus systems in a large metropolitan area, SMART will reconsider its decision that only allows SMART buses to enter the city of Detroit during their defined “peak hours.”

Two Women, Four Wheels is an organized effort by Damaschke and Funke that documents their experiences using the SMART and DDOT buses while also biking in Detroit and the metropolitan area.


  1. You got my respect! You did a great job at the Board meeting, and I appreciate that you cared enough to come to the meeting to try and help to make the bus system better. Hopefully you will continue to provide your constructive feedback to SMART.
