DETROIT (AP) - Detroit has resumed bus service to Belle Isle in a move that allows riders to visit the island park without paying the usual cost of entry.

The Detroit Department of Transportation and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources say service started last Saturday. They note that a standard $1.50 bus fare will offer access to the park via a stop that’s near attractions such as the aquarium and conservatory.

Typically, a Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry to Belle Isle. That costs $11 a year for Michigan-registered vehicles and includes access to all state parks.

The Detroit News reports that the city previously discontinued bus service to Belle Isle in 2007. The state now manages the park that’s located in the Detroit River.
