Directions to Ann
Arbor from Detroit Metro Airport
By Taxi. While taxi service is available from Detroit
Metro Airport to Ann Arbor, it is about 23 miles from the airport
to the hotel, so this can be an expensive proposition for one
person. This can be an economical choice for several going to
the same destination, but be sure to get an estimate of the fare
from the driver.
By Van. Regularly scheduled van service between Detroit
Metro Airport and Ann Arbor is available from Commuter Express.
Ticket counters are located near the baggage claim areas at the
airport. As of 19 April 1999, ticket prices were $22 one-way to
Ann Arbor, and $42 round-trip. For more information, phone Commuter
Express's 24-hour number: 1-888-854-6700.
By Auto. The distance to all Ann Arbor destinations
relevant for the conference is 23-24 miles.

- To the Sheraton Inn Ann Arbor: The main road exiting
the airport will intersect Interstate 94 at the edge of the airport.
Drive west on I-94 toward Ann Arbor about 20 miles
until you reach Exit 177 (State Street, Ann Arbor). Exit
right (north) onto State Street and drive a very
short distance (about 0.1 miles) to Victor's Way, then turn right
(east) onto Victor's Way. Boardwalk will intersect
Victor's Way from the left (north) after about 0.2 miles.
The Sheraton is on Boardwalk near that intersection.
- To the University of Michigan Mathematics Department:
The main road exiting the airport will intersect Interstate 94
at the edge of the airport. Drive west on I-94
toward Ann Arbor about 17 miles until you reach the US 23
exits. Drive north on US-23 for about two miles
to Exit 37 onto Washtenaw Avenue. Drive west on
Washtenaw Avenue about 3 miles (staying in the right lane
in the early part, since Washtenaw veers off to the right after
about 1.5 miles) until reaching South University Avenue. Turn
left (west) onto South University Avenue for one
block, to Forest Avenue, then turn left (south) onto Forest
Avenue for about one-half block to a public parking structure.
(There is also free on-street parking just south of there, if
you are fortunate enough to find a spot.) The mathematics building
(East Hall) is reached from the parking structure by walking
back north to South University, west one block to Church Street,
then north one-half block to East Hall, which will be on your
left. If you get to Dennison Hall, you have gone too far north.
