Bus company to pilot route between Ann Arbor, Chicago

The Associated Press

Chicago – A New York-based bus company that plans routes based on customer feedback is going to try a route between Ann Arbor and Chicago.

OurBus co-founder Axel Hellman says the company is going to pilot the route around Thanksgiving with the target audience of University of Michigan students.

OurBus started in 2016. It doesn’t own buses, but contracts with companies for vehicles with Wi-Fi and reclining seats.

The Chicago Tribune reports the company began a two-month pilot service between Chicago and Indianapolis last month after Amtrak ended its passenger line.

OurBus officials say it’s a popular route and is making that service permanent.
