While the city of Ann Arbor is a little under an hour by car from Detroit, many of our members live, work, and travel between these two cities. There are easy bus options now available to make traveling between Bamboo Detroit and Bamboo Ann Arbor a breeze.
“I’ve happily used the D2A2 bus weekly for the past 18 months. It’s great to be able to spend the ride to and from Detroit working or reading when in the past I would be paying attention to traffic and construction cones. Heavy traffic or bad weather? I don’t think twice - there’s a professional driving," says James Burdine, a Bamboo member. "The bus connects Detroit and Ann Arbor in the kind of way that makes it part of my weekly routine. I can count on it.”
