I live in metro Detroit and public transportation is a foreign concept to us, so when we travel, it doesn't cross our mind. As for renting, you have to be close to a rental company and sometimes that's not possible. Mackinaw City, MI - no rental companies, for example or public transportation, unless you're going to the island. But going into the UP or further, nothing.
