Millage & Service Improvements
Efficient, reliable connections between our communities increases equity and economic opportunity for all residents.
In August 2022, the voters of Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township approved TheRide’s millage request to expand and improve transit service with the majority vote of 61%. Though approved in 2022, the new 5-year 2.38 mil property tax and services will not go into effect until 2024. These improvements will include several key enhancements to our public transit services.
TheRide will improve transit services to advance the community’s needs for social, environmental and economic sustainability. These will include several key improvements to our public transit services:
