The Institute-run weekend van shuttles have ended. They will not be available on the weekend of July 20-21.
Shuttles to the Detroit Airport
A local company, Golden Limo, is offering a shuttle service between the Detroit Airport and Ann Arbor (with stops in both Northwood and Central Campus) on the days immediately preceding and following the Institute. A round trip shuttle ticket through this service is $75 and a one-way ticket is $40. You can make the reservations and pay here (you’ll need to scroll to the bottom of the page, past the field trip information.)
Public transportation leaving Central Campus
To return to Northwood, take the blue Northwood buses from the Ruthven Museum.
If you want to go to Meijer (and the vans we have provided are not convenient), you can take the 6 bus from the Michigan Union. A pdf copy of the AATA (Ann Arbor Transit Authortity) bus schedule can be found here.
The schedule toward Meijer can be found on pages 50-51 (Bus 6 to Ypsilanti). The returning schedule can be found on pages 48-49 for (Bus 6 to Ann Arbor). Weekend hours are limited, but are more regular and frequent than our van system.
In the event that you stay out later than our van schedule or other public transit is unavailable, you can call a taxi. Below are some providers:
Blue Cab – (734) 547-2222
Ann Arbor Taxi – (734) 883-6921
Yellow Cab – (734) 663-8898
