Regular fares are cheap for Michigan's larger transit agencies. Detroit at $1.50, Detroit's suburban system at $2.00 (was also $1.50 until 2009), Lansing at $1.25, Ann Arbor at $1.50, and Grand Rapids at $1.50. The fare for the Woodward Avenue Streetcar line will be $1.50. It was a near scandal when the fare for the Detroit People Mover was raised to $0.75.
But, you get what you pay for, or in a lot of these cases, what you don't pay for at the farebox. Some of these systems are rather successful, but some of them are cratering.
