After check in at the welcome desk, you will be directed to our boarding location in the ground transportation center of your terminal. Please note that some of our motorcoaches may be labeled “Indian Trails” on the side. 

On Sunday, May 28, our motorcoaches will depart from five MSU campus neighborhoods.  Your pick up location will be determined by your dorm assignment. The welcome desk will give you pickup location details when you arrive in Detroit.
