Ypsilanti Township and the Ann Arbor Area Transport Authority (AAATA) are close to reaching an agreement to provide expanded service for residents of the Township. On September 9, the Ypsilanti Township Board of Trustees voted to approve a resolution requesting membership in the AAATA. The proposed plan calls for extended hours for bus lines 4,5 and 6 as well as having Ypsilanti Township bus lines 10, 11 and 20 split into seven new routes. The plan also expands the 'dial-a-ride' program, which provides rides to disabled and senior citizen riders to a chosen bus route. The Township currently contracts for service with the AAATA for $306,000 annually. Officials are unsure of how much more the extended service would cost.
