|Michigan Flyer-AirRide passengers traveling between Ann Arbor’s Blake Transit Center (BTC) and either East Lansing or Detroit Metro Airport will board and be dropped-off in a new spot at the BTC. The new boarding location is 390 S. 5th Avenue (corner of 5th Ave. and William St.), across from the main entrance to the Ann Arbor Library. See “AirRide” on this diagram.|
This change coincides with the opening of the new 12,019 square-foot BTC building, which boasts better rider amenities, including a larger customer service lobby and improved restrooms. It’s also now home to the getDowntown program—formerly located on E. Washington St.—with offices on the BTC’s second floor. The commuting resource offers programs and services to employees and employers in downtown Ann Arbor that include the go!pass, Commuter Challenge, bike locker rentals, Zipcars, free commuting assistance and more.
Located on the same lot as the former BTC building, the new BTC was needed to accommodate the more than 5,000 passengers now arriving and departing daily, especially riders who stop at BTC en route to downtown Ann Arbor destinations, or who transfer between buses there.
