Getting Around Ann Arbor and Lodging

Ann Arbor is a highly walkable and bikeable city. However, it can be best to take a U-M bus when traveling between North and Central campuses or, if driving yourself, to take advantage of visitor parking spaces. U-M buses run frequently and can be ridden at no cost.
