Public transit is the most inexpensive way of getting to the U of M. In addition to being more affordable than parking on campus, buses also save students, staff, and faculty from the hassle of getting to campus in rush hour traffic. Parking and Transportation Services works with local public transit providers to provide the best possible service to meet the transportation needs of the University community. The University also provides FREE shuttle service between campuses!

For Disabled Riders
on the Bus

All campus shuttle buses and Metro Transit buses serving campus are lift-equipped. If you need extra help boarding a bus (even if you are not in a wheelchair), feel free to ask the driver to use the lift. Prior to boarding, position yourself on a sidewalk space that is clear of snow and other barriers so that the lift can operate freely.
