At long last, an inexpensive, convenient, and greener option to ride to the airport from Ann Arbor. At its board meeting on February 16, the
Ann Arbor Transportation Authority
(AATA) will consider a resolution to award a two-year contract to Indian Trails, Inc., doing business as Michigan Flyer, to provide regular bus service from Ann Arbor's Blake Transit Center and other city locations to Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
Advance reservations on the service, to be known as AirRide, will cost $12 one-way and $22 round-trip (with restricted refundability); fully refundable and walk-up fares will be $15 one-way and $30 round-trip. Fare discounts are available for seniors, students ages 6-17, and those with AATA-issued ADA and Medicare cards. Children five and under will ride for free. An introductory promotional fare of $10 one way and $20 round trip will be offered, with possible volume discounts for groups of eight or larger.
The AATA board meeting will be held on Thursday, February 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ann Arbor District Library.
