Michigan Flyer bypasses Blake Transit Center on U-M football Saturdays

miflyeruofmPlanning a Saturday trip on Michigan Flyer-AirRide between Ann Arbor and East Lansing or Detroit Metro Airport this fall?

If so, you should know that on five University of Michigan home football game Saturdays, several of its scheduled runs will NOT be stopping at the Blake Transit Center (BTC.)

Instead, due to road closures and detours , these motorcoaches will bypass the BTC and go directly to the Kensington Court Hotel. This will affect many of our runs before, during, and after the following home games:

Aug. 31: U-M versus Central Michigan, 3:30 p.m
Sept. 7: U-M versus Notre Dame, 8 p.m.
Sept. 14: U-M versus Akron, noon
Oct. 5: U-M versus Minnesota, 3:30 p.m.
Oct. 19: U-M versus Indiana, 3:30 p.m.

However, some Michigan Flyer-AirRide runs will continue to stop at the BTC on these days. It’s easy to find out which ones: Just check the “Book a Trip” feature on the Michigan Flyer-AirRide website, which has already been programmed to show when the BTC is available as an arrival or departure point on football Saturdays. 

Finally, please note that the BTC ticket sales office will be closed on the same Saturdays during the periods when our coaches aren’t stopping there, and that for the homecoming game on Oct. 5 it will be closed until 7:30 p.m. or later. (Find BTC’s regular hours here.)
