An hour-long bus route from Detroit to Ann Arbor and vice versa is expected to begin service in the first quarter of 2020, if given the blessing of the Regional Transit Authority’s board next month.
Detroit-to-Ann Arbor mobility was a priority of the 2016 regional transit millage, which failed.
The D2A2 route would start in Detroit at Grand Circus Park, downtown, and end in downtown Ann Arbor at the Blake Transit Center, according to transit officials.
If approved, most riders will pay either $12 at the farebox or $10 if they book a seat beforehand. Seniors and people with disabilities can ride for just $6. Monday through Friday, 16 routes will take off from Ann Arbor and 16 from Detroit. On Saturday and Sunday, just eight trips are planned between the cities.
“This is long overdue,” said Mario Morrow, spokesman for the authority. “We’ve been waiting for this one for a long time.”
