Ann Arbor-Howell corridor and
the relocation of the existing Ann
Arbor Amtrak station.
The Fuller Road transit station
project also consists of the con-
struction of a new train station,
rail platforms, a bus transit. cen-
ter and bike storage, Cooper said.
The plan would also relocate
the existing Amtrak Station to
the Fuller Road site within the
next few decades since parking is
insufficient at the current station
located at 325 Depot St., Cooper
said. He added that the proposed
train station would be more con-
venient since it wouldbe closer to
the University's campus.
The ultimate goal of the proj-
ect is to meet the needs of the
Ann Arbor community by mak-
ing transportation more accessi-
ble and convenient, Cooper said.
According to the Ann Arbor
Connector Feasibility Study
conducted last June, 30,000 to
40,000 students use the Fuller
Road site each day, so the chang-
es would make "getting around
Ann Arbor easier," Cooper said.
"(The Fuller Road transit sta-
tion) has an ability to represent
a paradigm shift for the commu-
nity, including students," he said.
According to a Jan. 18, 2010
article in The Michigan Daily,
the University will pay 78 percent
of all construction costs for the
station, totaling $36 million, and
thus entitling University-affili-
ated individuals to 78 percent of
parking spots in the structure.
Jim Kosteva, the University's
director of community relations,
said the project is going to benefit
the entire city as well as the Uni-
"This is a partnership," Koste-
va said. "This is a community,
and as their partner, there will be
He added that each entity has
been working to make trans-
portation more convenient and
efficient throughout Ann Arbor.
The Fuller Road transit station
is especially necessary, Kosteva
said, because the city's popula-
tion is expected to rise, which
will increase the need for alter-
native transportation methods.
However, some city officials,
including Ann Arbor City Coun-
cil members Mike Anglin (D-
Ward 5) and Stephen Kunselman
(D-Ward 3), aren't convinced the
transit station is the most effec-
tive addition to the city.
Anglin said he doesn't support
the execution of the plan, which
he said wasn't "well-construct-
ed." Building a new train sta-
tion isn't what the city currently
needs, he said, and the funds for
the station have yet to be secured.
Kunselman also said he's
hesitant to support the project
because of funding. The city
has failed to "identify all of the
funding sources for the parking
garage," he said.
Instead of the transit station,
Anglin said he would like to see
the city buy new buses.
To have a "healthy university,
you have to have a healthy city,"
Anglin said. But this project is "a
parking structure for the Univer-
sity," rather than the city, he said.
Kunselman said he doesn't
want the Fuller Road transit sta-
tion to be passed by City Council
in its current state.
"In theory (the parking struc-
ture) is nice, but in practicality
there's a significant number of
questions and concerns," he said.
There are more pressingissues
throughout Ann Arbor that the
city should attend to first, Kun-
"(The project) doesn't fit into
the reality of today," Kunselman
said, adding that he doesn't think
there is a need for a commuter
"We can call it a transit cen-
ter, but it's really just a parking
lot with a bus stop," Kunselman
