Hotels & Transportation

There are several good ways to get around town as a student here even if you don’t own a car. Ann Arbor is often cited as one of the most walkable cities in the country. U-M is considered a bike-friendly campus. All U-M students can ride both the Ann Arbor Transit Authority buses and the U-M buses for free with their student ID (M-Card). Where you decide to live may be influenced by the best transportation options available to you in that location.

Getting Here

Conveniently located just 30 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport, less than an hour from the city of Detroit, and less than five hours from Chicago, Ann Arbor is easy to reach by car, bus, train or plane.

Getting Around Ann Arbor

Once in town, most students choose to walk, bus (for free with your student ID), or bike their way around campus.

Bicycles also work well with other alternative transportation options. The AATA's buses all have bike racks on them. Also, zipcars are located around campus for those times you really need a car and U-M students can join at a discounted rate.
