Let’s Roll: Reimagining Transit on Washtenaw Avenue


Every day, thousands of people use the Route 4 – Washtenaw Avenue bus to access central Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and destinations in between. Yet the most-travelled route in the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) system is often slowed by traffic conditions, particularly in the congested 4.5 miles between Stadium Boulevard in Ann Arbor and the Ypsilanti water tower. Winner of the 2013 Michigan Association of Planning Outstanding Student Project Award, this study analyzes delay sources and national best practices to recommend measures for reducing transit delay along Washtenaw, including both immediate improvements and transformative long-term changes that can make the corridor a more accessible and prosperous place.
