TheRide has been an essential resource in the greater Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area for more than 50 years. It has grown incrementally based on community needs; providing fixed-route bus service, on-demand services like A-Ride and FlexRide, and commuter services like vanpooling and park-and-ride lots.
TheRide 2045 Long-Range Plan provides a vision for a long-term system plan and shorter-term implementation steps for public transit in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area. The plan focuses on improving social equity by increasing access to jobs and housing, while also contributing to a cleaner environment and a vibrant economy.
We will update this webpage over the course of the project to share our public engagement to date and any opportunities to participate. The public engagement period is currently closed. TheRide is reviewing all feedback received and will provide a final recommendation to TheRide's Board of Directors in Late 2022.
