Mich. transit, coach entities form PPP

Posted on February 21, 2012

Mich.-based Ann Arbor Transportation Authority's (TheRide) board of directors approved a resolution to create a public-private partnership with Michigan Flyer (a subsidiary of Indian Trails Bus Co.) that will provide public transportation to the airport.

The new service, named AirRide, is expected to begin in April and will provide 12 daily round trips from Ann Arbor to Detroit Metro Airport and will be operated by Michigan Flyer on behalf of TheRide.  Michigan Flyer currently operates eight round trips between Ann Arbor and Detroit Metro Airport for $15 one-way.

The AirRide partnership will provide for four additional trips and provide reduced, more affordable fares on all 12 regularly scheduled trips. Tickets for AirRide will be offered at an introductory rate of $10 for a one-way trip. The regular adult fare will be $12 with a reservation, or $15 without a reservation. Discounts for seniors, people with a disability and children will also be offered.
