1. MDetroit Center Connector to Conclude Pilot Service on June 21

    June 9, 2015

    After a careful overall analysis of the current system, the MDetroit Center Connector (MDCC) will conclude pilot operations following its final run on Sunday, June 21, 2015.

    On October 5, 2013, the University of Michigan Detroit Center in partnership with the Semester in Detroit program launched the MDetroit Center Connector pilot shuttle service. Primarily funded by a Transforming Learning for the Third Century grant, the Connector was established as a transit service between the Ann Arbor campus and Detroit for University of Michigan students, faculty, and staff to support curricular, research, engaged learning and community service opportunities.

    Since its inception nearly two years ago, the MDetroit Center Connector has connected more than 2,000 individuals and 60 University programs/student groups between Ann Arbor and Detroit. Through data analysis and rider/advisory committee feedback, the MDCC continuously strived to enrich the relationships between these two cities while providing riders with the best transit experience possible.
