ANN ARBOR, Mich. – On Tuesday, Aug. 4., the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide) kicked off a month-long series of virtual public town hall meetings to discuss temporary changes in services that begin Aug. 30.
In June, TheRide announced a series of temporary service changes, including a revised network of bus routes and increased frequency of buses on busy routes. The revised routes are designed to prioritize essential destinations so as to reflect realities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At noon on Tuesday, Aug. 4., CEO of TheRide Bryan Smith will give a 20-minute presentation discussing why the transportation authority is not able to restore all services in August. He will also answer questions from the public.
The Tuesday meeting will be held through Zoom at https://zoom.us/j/92072578423. Attendees will need to register before proceeding to the meeting. Community members can also call into the meeting. Find dial-in instructions here.
