The Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority, also known as TheRide, has started to increase its bus service after making schedule changes in March because of COVID-19.
Bus routes 3, 4, and 5 are among the routes that TheRide is now offering every 15 or 30 minutes to help relieve overcrowded buses. COVID-19 caused some of the routes to be reduced to every 30 minutes or hour. Bryan Smith is the deputy CEO of operations for TheRide.
Bryan Smith: Those are our inter-town routes that run between Ann Arbor and Ypsi and really show the highest demand. Our 4 is kind of our main line route that travels up and down Washtenaw.
