FootballRide shuttles begin September 8
ANN ARBOR, MI – The Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (TheRide) will begin a new FootballRide shuttle season with the September 8 University of Michigan game against Air Force.
The service will operate between 17 hotel and parking sites and Michigan Stadium for six home football games this fall. Six additional hotels will be served indirectly at nearby pick-up sites. Hotel parking may be limited to hotel patrons.
FootballRide runs approximately every 20 minutes starting two hours before game time with the last shuttles leaving 30 minutes before game time. Return shuttles run for approximately one hour after each game.
FootballRide tickets are $1.50 each way for adults and may be purchased at most of the hotel sites, in advance by mail or in person at TheRide’s main office, 2700 South Industrial Highway in Ann Arbor. Riders are encouraged to purchase round-trip tickets, as drivers do not carry change. Reduced fares are available for those who qualify.
