There is an easy, cost-saving alternative to parking in Ann Arbor. Park & Ride lots offer free, all day parking and easy access to TheRide's fixed-route bus service.
Park & Ride
City-owned parking structures can charge up to $2,000/year. Avoid these fees by parking your car for free outside the city center and riding the bus to work or school. TheRide provides direct bus service to downtown Ann Arbor and U-M campuses. With low-cost bus fares and convenient commuter schedules, Park & Ride is your answer to an easier commute.
Make sure to park in a designated Park & Ride lot to avoid parking tickets or towing. Overnight parking is not permitted.
To plan your commute from one of these lots, use the Plan My Trip tool to find your route and boarding time.
