The Detroit Connector, a University of Michigan bus service connecting the Ann Arbor campus to the city of Detroit, will begin providing service seven days a week, starting Monday, October 30, to U-M faculty, staff, students, and for the first time, the general public.
Bus stops will include the Central Campus Transit Center (CCTC) in Ann Arbor, University of Michigan Detroit Center, and for the first time, University of Michigan-Dearborn. The Detroit Connector will also include expanded service hours, including Fridays and Saturdays beginning as early as 7 a.m. and concluding at 1 a.m.
“The University of Michigan is deeply committed to creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive campus environment,” says Robert Sellers, Vice Provost for Equity & Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer. “The Detroit Connector helps us break down existing barriers and better connect the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Detroit communities. By expanding service and opening it to the public, the Detroit Connector can improve access to the region’s numerous research, academic and cultural opportunities.”
