When arriving on campus each fall,
new students quickly find transportation
is a little different than in high school.
Instead of driving everywhere they want
to go, most students are forced to find
other ways to travel around campus and
Most University students walk to class-
es and many rely on the public transporta-
tion system to travel around Ann Arbor.
Getting around central campus is
fairly easy, since most destinations are
within walking distance. Many students
choose to speed up their trips, however,
by in-line skating or riding their bikes.
"It's definitely easier to get around
campus if you have a bike," said Diana
Ricotta, a Music graduate student.
Nearly every campus building has
bike racks outside where students can
lock up their bikes at no charge.
The Department of Public Safety rec-
ommends that students use a "U-lock"
to secure their bikes because thefts
occur quite frequently.
Students are also advised to make sure
that, in addition to the bar of the bike,
they secure their front tire to the rack, as
these are often stolen.
Traveling between North Campus and
Central Campus is made easier by Uni-
versity buses that run regularly through-
out the day.

The main bus stop is located near the
intersection of Washtenaw and North
University avenues near the Exhibit
Museum of Natural History. There is also
a stop on Washtenaw Avenue near
Couzens Residence Hall.
Going anywhere off-campus can be a
little more difficult but students say they
generally think it is not too bad.
"You can pretty much go anywhere
you want," said Jeanne Cho, an LSA
The Ann Arbor Transportation
Authority provides the city with buses
that stop at more than 1,200 stops
One of the most popular bus stops for
students is in front of the Michigan
Union. Buses stop there once an hour
from about 6:45 a.m. until 10:15 p.m. on
weekdays and from about 8 a.m. to 6:15
p.m. on weekends. A one-way fare in
Ann Arbor is 75 cents.
Students who do not want to use the
buses or who wish to travel around Ann
Arbor after AATA hours can use any ,of
a handful of taxicab companies in Ann

dents usually find thedrivers to be friend-
Driving anywhere in the campus area
can be challenging and hazardous because
of the large numbers of pedestrians.

weave around pedestrains. All bikes must be registered with the city.
