The AATA announced a list of service changes that it is proposing for the fall. You can view the list of changes here

AATA has this to say about the proposed changes:

“Overall, the proposed changes are designed to add service during morning and afternoon peak hours, and improve on-time performance on routes where this has been a problem, including the 4, 1U and 12U routes. The proposed changes would improve service to the Miller Road Park & Ride lot and add service to the new Skyline High School.”

Some other highlights of the changes:

  • Route 4: Buses from UM Medical Center from Arborland would operate all year round and would add another bus to this service.
  • Route 4: Buses from Ypsilanti to Ann Arbor wouldn’t pull into Manchester.
  • Route 7: A 10:45pm trip from the downtown to the Pioneer High Park and Ride would be added to this route.
  • Route 12UL: This route would be eliminated and replaced with more frequent service on the #8.
  • Route 8: Frequency would increase to every 15 minutes.
  • 12UM: Increase service to Miller Road Park and Ride Lot and service to Skyline High.
  • Route 13 and 14: Midday service would be eliminated
