The DIA is making an offer that might be hard for Wayne County residents to refuse: it will provide free bus transportation  for Wayne County residents to and from the museum on Saturday, July 26 as part of its second "Wayne County Day." Admission to the DIA has already been free for residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties ever since the passage of a millage tax so all you really have to do is show up.
