The Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan (RTA) in partnership with the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide) is proposing to offer a new pilot express bus service connecting Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The proposed service will provide hourly trips between the two communities for 16 hours a day during the week (6:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m.) and limited service on Saturday and Sunday. Proposed one-way fares for this service are: $12 base fare, $10 advanced booking discount, $6 eligible senior/disability fare. The proposed service would be a demonstration project intended to establish the market for transit in this corridor and evaluate the effectiveness of other commuter/congestion mitigation strategies along this corridor.
