Each year transportation network Lyft releases a list of places that its customers wanted to be taken most frequently to throughout the year.

For 2016, the San Francisco-based company included Detroit in its findings and announced the results Wednesday as part of the Lyftie Awards.

The most visited restaurant in Detroit was HopCat, 4265 Woodward in Midtown, and the most visited bar was O’Tooles at 205 W. Fifth in Royal Oak. Lyft riders wanted to be dropped off at Comerica Park more than any other event space, and Rosa Parks Transit Center was the most oft-visited transit stop.

Eastern Market took the “Only In Detroit” award and Campus Martius Park was most often a trending destination.

Nationally, the most visited transit stop was Union Station in Washington D.C. and the most popular tourist destination was Navy Pier in Chicago. For a full list of Lyftie Awards 2016 visit take.lyft.com/thelyftieawards.
