Getting Around

A Connected, Accessible Location

With so much to see and do across the state, Michigan is dedicated to help you get from point A to B… and beyond! Michigan’s public transit network includes more than 135 public transit service providers, rideshare and marine passenger businesses. Prefer two wheels? Miles of bike lanes and rail trails, as well as bike and scooter share programs, keep Michiganders on a roll.

Our 120,000-mile highway, road and street network also provides easy transportation options for your commutes and road trips, including Interstate 75, which stretches all the way from the Upper Peninsula to Miami, Florida. As the state driving the next generation of transportation, mobility and electrification, it’s only natural that Michigan also offers a vast network of EV charging stations throughout our two peninsulas.

Known as the Lake Michigan EV Circuit, the state is implementing an electric vehicle route with reliable charging options along Lake Michigan in state parks and along other key tourism clusters, creating the best new road-trip for EV owners in America. This is just one of many ongoing efforts, along with as the Charge Up Michigan program, to employ green technologies throughout the state, including solar-powered amenities, carbon sequestration and numerous efficiencies.

Electric Vehicle Charging Network

The Second Level for Electric Mobility

In a state that has been pegged to dominate the electric vehicle (EV) industry by 2030, having a comprehensive network of fast charging EV stations is paramount. Michigan’s Office of Future Mobility and Electrification works diligently to make the state a leader in electric vehicle (EV) adoption. As part of the effort, the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) is leading the development of a state-wide DC fast charging network. By implementing these initiatives, Michigan is well on the path to creating sustainable change in the transportation sector.
