How to get from Detroit to Sarnia?

Hi,

Am planning to fly into Detroit, then travel to Sarnia, Ontario.

Does anyone have any tips on the best way to do this and how much it might cost?

Thanks.

Take a bus right north on the interstate to Port Huron, then cross the Bluewater Bridge to Sarnia.

Thanks. So is that two buses? Do you know how much it would cost?

Hi smalleyellis;

Sarnia is approx. 80 miles / 130 km from the Detroit Airport. The quickest and easiest way would be to rent a car and drive yourself.

Best Regards

There is no public transport from Windsor to Sarnia directly. The train was the only way, going Windsor to London, then back tracking London to Sarnia. This may now be in jeopardy, as VIA has taken trains of these routes. Incidentally, Widsorites wanting to go to Sarnia, cross over to Detroit, drive to Port Huron and cross over to Sarnia. Saves hours of driving time as their are no direct expressways on this side of the border, and Lake St Clair is in the way.

Remember, renting in the USA and coming into Canada, make sure that you have full documentation on the car to cross into Canada.

Yeah, returning the car back to the location you rented it from isn't always possible.

I heard that GO Tranist was to take over some of VIA routes but GO isn't going all the way to Sarnia anytime soon, heck London doesn't have GO service yet I don't believe
