The Ann Arbor DDA works to promote downtown vitality. An important strategy is the encouragement of a menu of transportation choices for downtown visitors, residents, customers, employees, and others, who can select their preferred means to come downtown based on factors such as cost, convenience, and environmental interests. Use the interactive map to find locations and information about downtown parking and transportation options.
