A private bus service will get a federal grant, despite the objections of Lansing’s Capitol Region International Airport.
The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission last night approved a $595,000 federal grant to the Michigan Flyer. The Flyer currently operates 8 daily round trips from Lansing to Ann Arbor to Metro Airport. The grant will allow its buses to run four more round trips each day.
Airport officials fear the added bus service will siphon off potential air passengers from Lansing.
