DETROIT — After a successful first trial year, the University of Michigan's Detroit Connector bus has established itself as a viable option for students traveling to Detroit. Now, the goal is to generate more interest to keep the program alive and growing, The Michigan Daily reported.

The bus, now in its second year of operation after being renewed as a part of the University’s Detroit Center budget, made its first journey of this year Sept. 18 running on grant money. The service is free, and the Connector staff plans to keep it that way for as long as possible, though a $5 donation per ride is suggested, according to the report.
