airBus The cheapest way to travel back and forth from the airport is to use the Central Student Government (or CSG) airBus service, with pick-up in 3 locations around campus. Note that this shuttle only runs prior to scheduled UM school breaks. The CSG airBus to the DTW Airport charges students with a Mcard $9 if they buy their ticket in advance, and $11 if they board the bus without a reservation (reserve your spot here). To return to U-M after break, there’s no need to buy a ticket. You just swipe your Mcard when you get to the bus stop and $11 is charged to your student account, NOT your Blue Bucks account! Non-reserved seats are also sold on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be charged to your student account. All return trips from the airport to Ann Arbor are non-reserved seats and are charged to your student account.
