Getting around Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor and beyond

Bus- The Ride 

Around the EMU campus

There is a bus that has a route around campus and to the College of Business that does not required the EMU discount pass, but only requires you to have an EMU ID card.

In Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor

Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor have an excellent bus system that helps students get around. EMU students can get a discount monthly bus pass. These bus passes can be bought at the Parking office in the Public Safety building and the Cashier's office in Pierce Hall. Using Google Maps, you can select the bus icon and figure out the bus routes and how long it takes to get to your destination.

Express Ride

The bus system also has special passes (different than the EMU discount passes) called ExpressRide to get to Chelsea and Canton from Ann Arbor.


The AirRide is a bus that goes between the Detroit Metro Airport and Ann Arbor.


Hertz on Demand

EMU has a car share program that allows students to rent a car right on campus! Click here for more information about the Hertz on Demand program.


Parking your car on campus

Some students choose to have a car on campus. To park the car on campus, a student must have a parking hang tag (parking pass). Parking department in the Public Safety building can assist students in purchasing parking passes. To see where students may park, visit

As a reminder, the State of Michigan requires all cars to have valid registration and car insurance. The Michigan Secretary of State has information about owning a vehicle.

OIS hosts the Secretary of State and Social Security Administration on campus each September. To learn more about this event, visit
