In addition to the UM bus system and taxi cabs, the University of Michigan and the City of Ann Arbor provide several alternatives to walking alone at night from campus to your residence. More information about Late Night Transportation is available through Student Affairs.
This is a service provided by the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) and is a subsidized, low cost, shared nighttime cab service that travels within the Ann Arbor city limits. Each passenger pays a fixed rate of $5.00 regardless of distance traveled. Contact Night Ride for more information or to schedule a pick-up.
