Shuttle Transportation – Airport and Bus Stations

The Office of Campus Safety contracts with Detroit Airport Town Cars to provide transportation to and from Detroit Metropolitan Airport on request, subject to the requirements and limitations listed below.  The cost for this transportation is $100 each way, or $50 each way for students traveling together.  It is important to note that all students who wish to utilize this service must complete the transportation request form at least one week in advance of the travel date.  Questions about this service should be emailed to

During the beginning and ending of semesters, every effort is made to group students together to reduce the cost to $50 per student.  Students may request to be grouped with other students to reduce the cost; however, this can result in students having to leave campus several hours before their flight is scheduled to depart and/or longer wait times at the airport until a scheduled pickup.
