Our Deployments: Free public transportation in Ann Arbor

At May Mobility, we’re committed to transforming cities through autonomous vehicle technology. What does that mean? Well in our hometown of Ann Arbor, Mich., it means providing safe and accessible free public transportation.

We aren’t just another taxi service, but rather an autonomous microtransit service. We work with communities to bridge transportation gaps. The A2GO service, provided in collaboration with Via, Mcity, 4M and Ann Arbor SPARK, offers fare-free transit through the streets of downtown. No matter how many times you ride, what time of day it is or where you go, the A2GO service is free of charge—that means tipping, too!

“We look for ways to complement public transit systems, and we’re doing that today in Ann Arbor,” said Customer Success Manager Allison Hegarty. “For example, there is no public transportation to and from the Amtrak station and we wanted to solve that. Hearing feedback from our riders that they’re leveraging our free transport service to ride to and from that area, in addition to commuting to and from school or work or even to go shopping, we’re opening the door and moving people safely throughout the city.”

Our service also takes riders to key locations like Kerrytown, 4M Venue, Yost Arena, the UM campus including the Diag and more. To take a free ride, simply use the May Mobility mobile app (available from Apple and Google Play), and request a ride at any of our pickup locations from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
