TheRide continues to add more service for Washtenaw County

August 24, 2015  //  FOUND IN: Announcements, Updates & Resources

Later hours on weekends, new Sunday Ypsilanti service and new Pittsfield Township route begin this week.

On Sunday, Aug. 23, the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide) began implementing service improvements in the urban core of Washtenaw County. In Aug. 2014, TheRide began implementing its Five-Year Transit Improvement Program (FYTIP), and this August, those efforts will continue to provide riders in the greater Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti areas with more ways to connect with jobs, schools, medical appointments, recreation and shopping.

These improvements include later weekend service on 17 routes, new Sunday service in Ypsilanti on three routes, and a brand new route; 67 Platt–Michigan Avenue, which will connect riders with Meijer on Carpenter Road and Walmart in Saline. TheRide’s A-Ride service for seniors and persons with disabilities will also have later service on weekends and its NightRide service will see changes to its service hours.
