AATA Route 5 service changes

From the news release – Sunday January 27, 2013 starts a new bus season, with improvements on the 5 route. All Route 5 details here for trips to Ann Arbor (PDF) and trips to Ypsilanti (PDF).

The service improvements are intended to provide:

  • More reliable service (better on-time performance)
  • Less crowded trips
  • More direct and faster service for riders

The number of buses on Route 5 will be increased from five to seven during morning and afternoon peak hours.

The segment of the route between downtown Ann Arbor and Packard/Stone School Roads will be increased from 4 to 6 trips per hour, and will continue to use the current routing.

Trip segments east of Packard/Stone School Roads will be divided into four variations:

  • 5A trips will travel between downtown Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti via Packard Rd., Stone School Rd., Ellsworth Rd., and Platt Rd.
  • 5B trips will travel between downtown Ann Arbor and Meijer via Packard Rd., Stone School Rd., and Ellsworth Rd.
  • 5C trips will travel between downtown Ann Arbor and Meijer (Carpenter Rd.) via Packard Rd., Stone School Rd., Platt Rd., and Ellsworth Rd.
  • NEW! – 5D trips will travel between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti directly via Buhr Park/Packard (with no service to Stone School Rd., Ellsworth Rd. or Platt Rd.).
