Bus services from Motor City to Tree Town will resume in mid-October
ANN ARBOR, me. – The hourly runs of the Detroit to Ann Arbor Express Bus Service (D2A2) will return on Monday, October 18th.
Organized by the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan (RTA) and the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority, D2A2 connects the two cities with daily trips.
Buses from Ann Arbor operate Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., with limited weekend buses leaving Tree Town between 9:45 a.m. and 8:15 p.m.
“Both communities asked us when the D2A2 service would be returning and we are excited to finally announce its return,” said Matt Carpenter, CEO of TheRide, in a press release. “The connectivity this service provides will make it easier for commuters to get to work in Ann Arbor and Detroit.”
The base rate for one-way tickets is $ 8. Those who buy tickets in advance only pay $ 6. Seniors or people with disabilities are eligible for $ 4, while commuters can purchase a 10-trip package for $ 50.
Advance ticket sales begin on Tuesday, September 28th.
“With our staff returning in person and the entertainment venues welcoming the fans back, we are very excited to announce the restart of the service. Our board of directors, our employees and our transit partners have worked hard to make this return possible. It’s time for D2A2 to return, ”said Ben Stupka, RTA’s interim managing director, in a press release.
The route, which started in March 2020, was suspended a month later due to health concerns due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It is operated by Michigan Flyer.
Parishioners can board D2A2 buses at the Blake Transit Center at 328 S. 5th Avenue in downtown Ann Arbor.
