Most routes in Ann Arbor originate at the Blake Transit Center (on Fourth Avenue between William and Liberty) at 15 minutes after and 15 minutes before each hour.

AATA operates Park and Ride lots as an alternative to parking in downtown Ann Arbor. Visitors may park free all day at a Park and Ride lot and just pay the bus fare to ride the bus downtown and back.

To Central Campus

Ann Arbor Parking 

UM Visitor Parking Information - The closest visitor parking structure is the Palmer Structure ($.70/half hour = $12.60 for 9hrs).  The Palmer structure is about an 8-10 minute walk to SPH1.  There are parking meters outside SPH, but they have a 2 or 4 hour time limit.

If you use the Interactive Campus Map for directions, the Palmer Structure is not listed, use either USB or LSI as you will come out of the parking structure near one of those 2 buildings.

The School of Public Health is located on the Medical Campus map, just off of Central Campus.  Consult both maps to find the nearest visitor parking options.
