GETTING AROUND ANN ARBOR

 

Ann Arbor can be reached by air (via Detroit), bus, car or train. 

Flying:
Ann Arbor is located 25 miles west of the Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) via I-94.

Once at DTW, there are numerous car rental companies, taxi and shuttle services on site waiting to take you to Ann Arbor.  Check with your hotel, as many have free shuttle services to and from the airport. 

Driving:
Ann Arbor is easily located off of both I-94 (running east-west to the south and west of Ann Arbor), and US 23 (running north-south to the east and north of Ann Arbor).

Bus:
Ann Arbor is accessible by Greyhound Bus Lines from multiple cities, and by Mega Bus from Chicago.
The Greyhound Station is conveniently located downtown at Huron and Main (116 W. Huron St).
The Mega Bus stop (there is no station) is located in the Commuter Park & Ride lot on the west side of S. State Street about half a mile north of I-94 near Briarwood Mall.  The stop is located on the east side of the lot near the entrance.

Train:
The Amtrak station (ARB) is centrally located in the Kerrytown area, right in between the north end of downtown and the north side of campus.   (325 Depot St.)
Trains run daily from Chicago and Detroit through Ann Arbor. 

Getting Around Ann Arbor:
If you didn’t drive or rent a car, Ann Arbor is still a very easy city to navigate.   Downtown Ann Arbor is just a few blocks west of campus, while Michigan Stadium, Yost Ice Arena and Crisler Arena are all located close together and less than a mile south of the center of campus, directly down State Street.  

The Ride is Ann Arbor’s local bus service, which will get you anywhere you need to go downtown, on campus, or to most areas where hotels are located.  On game days, check The Ride shuttle schedule for special service from select hotels.
