@dzombak not mentioned: intercity bus service (Greyhound and a few others) now operates from this station. Ridership data is hard to get but could be as high as 50% of Amtrak ridership. And before you count bus service, Ann Arbor is already as busy as the next two busiest Michigan stations (Detroit & Dearborn) combined! If you counted bus ridership, it might approach Detroit, Dearborn, Royal Oak, Birmingham/Troy & Pontiac *combined*.

2. The 10 minutes I spent trying values other than 0 and 3 for `Mouse Controls Grid: Mode` in the plist were wasted.
go!passes and MCards don’t require secondary ID when you get on a bus with one. Why should AAATA-issued student fare cards — particularly when some of those students don't even have ID cards?

@Cornellbox Michigan and Indiana were the first to get hit with the Dark Stores tactic; I think Indiana managed to pass legislation to close that loophole but Michigan's fix died in the state senate in 2016 (and I don't know if was even taken up last year).
