Anyhow, because I am taking this class, I found out about a few pretty cool things:
- There is an AATA bus that goes from the Ypsilanti Transit Center to many different points on the EMU campus.
- The bus runs frequently enough to actually be useful. It runs every 20 minutes.
- The bus is free. All fares are paid by EMU (and they don’t check student IDs or anything so it really is a nice asset for the community)
- The parking lot by the Ypsilanti Transit Center is free these days.
All in all, this means that I can either spend 20 minutes/half hour walking to the YTC (I walk slowly) and then take a 5 minute bus to my class or I can spend 5 minutes driving to the Ypsilanti Transit Center where I can park for free followed by a five minute bus ride to class. Not bad really even in cold weather. I noticed that the bus is very full.
