You can check how long the delay is online at the Canadian Border Services Border Wait Times page. This page is updated once an hour. I see at the moment that "Detroit and Canada Tunnel" is listed as No delay which the page explains means less than 10 minutes for traffic into Canada.

The Windsor Tunnel is highly efficient - as an American, it consisted of flashing my passport, and 30 second look, and a move on.

Your current options are: The Tunnel Bus, which requires the bike be disassembled and in a bike bag, and the ...

Sure. Stick to downtown and/or midtown Detroit during the day, or if you're going to a specific event, go there and don't venture too far away. Downtown/midtown encompasses the Woodward/Jefferson area, Tiger Stadium, Cobo Hall, The Joe, etc. There are plenty of festivals this time of year downtown (at least their used to be). Be prepared to see homeless ...

Just as a note it is generally rare for people living in the suburbs even in large metropolitan areas in the US not to have a car. Irrespective of that you can look at Crime Mapping site on which the information is published by the Detroit Police Department.

Why not just book the entire trip from the Greyhound.ca/com site, including the border crossing itself? Doing this with the same company gives you a guarantee of through-transportation. They understand, and schedule around, the length of time it takes to enter the USA at the border; however if you were unfortunately detained for far longer than usual, ...
