Free Ride Weekends - Just Show Your Library Card!

Ypsilanti Transit Center

ANN ARBOR, MI –  The Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide), Ann Arbor District Library (AADL), and Ypsilanti District Library (YDL) are partnering this summer to provide Free Ride Weekends! This is in coordination with the AADL Summer Game and the YDL Summer Challenge!

Every Saturday and Sunday from June 10 to August 27, Library cardholders can ride any of TheRide local fixed-route buses for free. All you need to do is show the driver your valid Ann Arbor District Library card or valid Ypsilanti District Library card when boarding the bus!

While riding, look for codes to earn points during the games. The AADL Summer Game code sign inside the bus has a code to earn 1,000 points, which can be used to earn awesome Summer Game shop prizes. Each bus has the same code inside, so it’s easy to find! When you see the code, visit, enter the code, and get 1,000 points. The YDL Summer Challenge code sign earns you a badge you can put towards a prize. Visit for more details.

TheRide and AADL have created fun ways to get even more Summer Game prizes:

  • Find a Summer Game code on AADL ads on the outside of several buses for 500 points
  • Find a Summer Game code hidden on Click the “About” tab and select “Projects” to read about what TheRide is working on for 100 points

The AADL Summer Game and YDL Summer Challenge are great ways to enjoy your summer and to ride TheRide for free! Remember, just show your valid AADL or YDL library card when boarding the bus and ride any of TheRide’s local fixed-routes for free!
