Ground Transportation

Ann Arbor is a short taxi, Uber, or bus ride from Detroit Metropolitan Airport, Michigan's major international airport right outside of Detroit. Taxis range from $40-60 each way and Ubers range from $20-30 each way (depending on traffic and surge pricing). Ann Arbor's AirRide transportation services cost only $15 each way ($12 if booked in advance), conveniently picking up passengers from the airport and dropping them off in Ann Arbor's downtown or business district.


The convening will be located at the Michigan Union (911 N. University, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1265), situated in the middle of downtown Ann Arbor.
