ANN ARBOR (WWJ) — Are you heading to the Big House to watch Michigan at all this season? If so, make sure to use the team’s new shuttle service.
With the college football season officially underway, Michigan fans can now take advantage of football shuttles the rest of the year to help get them to and from the Big House.
FootballRide, as it is now known, will operate between many hotel and parking sites, running every 20 minutes and starting two hours before the game with the last pickup 30 minutes before kick off.
Returning shuttles, meanwhile, will run for approximately one hour after each contest with tickets costing just a $1.50 for adults each way and can be purchased at most hotel sites, or in advance by mail.
Riders are also encouraged to purchase round trip tickets in advance as shuttle drivers do not carry change.

Plymouth Road Park & Ride Lot (North Shuttle)
Miller Road Park and Ride Lot (West Shuttle)
