But how in the world would an Ann Arbor-area commuter rack up 15,000 miles on The Ride? About the longest possible trip on AATA routes would be a two-hour, three-bus commute from Jackson Road at Wagner to somewhere near Willow Run High. That's about a thirty-mile round trip by car, so even if you rode the bus five days a week for fifty weeks a year, you'd save only 7,500 miles-and spend 1,000 hours on the bus. To get to 15,000 miles, you'd have to ride another 150 miles every weekend.

The following letter and editorial response appeared in the March, 2011 Ann Arbor Observer

To the Observer:

Thank you for noting the AATA press release of January 5 that outlined how much someone could save if they did not need a car and used AATA services [Up Front, February]. There are many factors in our lives that impact the value of transit for each of us.
