Michigan Flyer-AirRide will resume flights from Ann Arbor to DTW in April

ANN ARBOR – Starting Monday April 26th, Michigan Flyer-AirRide will restore daily air traffic between East Lansing, Brighton, Ann Arbor and Detroit Metro Airport.

The recovery is made possible by funding the bus service backed by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act.

The new schedule is simplified with 12 return flights a day, seven days a week and for all four locations.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be getting our fleet of luxury coaches back on the road and providing vital daily connections for air and intercity bus passengers including students and staff at Michigan State University and the University of Michigan,” said Ody Norkin, VP from Michigan Flyer in a statement.

“This is a clear sign that Michigan is starting to take action against the coronavirus pandemic thanks to vaccinations and public health measures like masking and social distancing.”


Reservations can be made online starting April 1st or by calling 517-333-0400.

Prices remain unchanged, but payments must be made by credit card. To avoid the risk of human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus, cash payments are not accepted. Drivers can accept credit card payments on the bus and email passengers.

When entering Ann Arbor, tickets can be purchased with cash from the Blake Transit Center during business hours.

Currently, capacity is limited to 50% of the passengers per bus to encourage safe distancing.

The following are the security measures Michigan Flyer will implement on its buses to protect passengers and drivers:

  • According to the requirements of the CDC, all passengers must wear face masks for the duration of their journey.

  • Provision of hand disinfectants on all buses.

  • Limitation of the number of passengers per bus.

  • Ask the passengers to occupy the seats as far apart as possible.

  • Ventilation of buses with fresh instead of recirculated air.

  • Provision of transparent protective barriers between drivers and passengers.

  • Daily cleaning and disinfection of buses with special attention to areas with heavy contact.

  • Requires daily symptom reviews of all staff on duty and compliance with a detailed COVID-19 response plan by staff.
