Centrally located within driving distance from many major hockey hubs in both the US and Canada, Ann Arbor is only 25 minutes from the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW). There are many affordable and hassle-free options for transportation between Ann Arbor and DTW, such as car rentals and airport shuttles but is a walkable city and won’t require a car to enjoy the event or everything the city has to offer once you arrive.

  • AirRide: Offers near-hourly service each day between Ann Arbor and Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW). Fares are $12 each way, with advance reservations. Boarding/pick-up locations are at Blake Transit Center and Kensington Hotel. For schedules and reservations, visit TheRide.org for more information.
  • Taxi/Shuttle Service:  There are many taxis, shuttles and private cars that specifically operate as airport transportation between Ann Arbor and DTW.
