Flying to Ann Arbor

The closest major airport to Ann Arbor is Detroit Metro Airport (DTW). The airport is about 35 miles east of Ann Arbor. From the airport, take I-94 West and follow it all the way to the State Street Exit in Ann Arbor. Take a right on State St. and continue for about 3 miles until you reach the University of Michigan campus.

You may also try the airports at Flint (FNT) and Toledo (TOL). Sometimes airlines have cheaper fares to these cities. Toledo and Flint are about an hour drive from Ann Arbor.

Transportation to/from DTW

Michigan Flyer (link to: http://www.michiganflyer.com/) This service connects DTW (both McNamara and Smith terminals) with Ann Arbor (Four Points by Sheraton at 3200 Boardwalk Street, which is at the I-94 / State Street Exit) and back. Fare: $10 each way. Go to the website for schedule and reservation information.

There are also taxi-cabs (around $50 plus tip one way) and shuttles (around $55 round trip). Shuttle services might not run periodically. You will have to call them in advance to schedule a pick-up or drop-off. Check the city's visitor guide transportation page for more information.

You don't need a car that much once you are in town, but renting a car for the weekend at the airport might not be any more expensive than taking the shuttle both ways.
