D2A2

The Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan (RTA) in partnership with the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide) is offering a new pilot express bus service connecting Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan.   The 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 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.
