Michigan Flyer expands service to Detroit Metro Airport

Posted on November 18, 2013

Michigan Flyer is expanding its AirRide service on its route between East Lansing, Ann Arbor and Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) — just in time to accommodate holiday season travelers.

The new schedule will increase the frequency of service from eight to 12 trips a day on the segment between East Lansing and Ann Arbor.

On the segment between Ann Arbor and DTW, reliability and convenience of service will be improved by providing both earlier and later runs to and from DTW, increasing the number of daily round trips from 12 to 13, and discontinuing the stop at the University of Michigan Central Campus Transit Center at a savings of about $407,000 in operating costs.

Overall, the new schedule will make it easier for passengers to connect with approximately 700 daily non-stop flights between DTW and top domestic and international destinations; access about 150 more DTW arrivals and departures than before; commute between East Lansing and Ann Arbor for business or pleasure; and enjoy much shorter waits between buses.
