Airport Pickup

The majority of international students travel to Detroit by air. The Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) is about 20 miles from campus and is the nearest airport with commercial airline service.

OISS (Office of International Students & Scholars) does not provide transportation between the airport and campus at this time. The Airport Taxi Detroit shuttle services provide transportation to and from the Detroit Metro Airport and their rates are much lower than regular cab services. In order to make your reservation you must contact them at 833-226-8339.

The shuttle service requires a reservation at least 48 hours before your arrival time.  In order to receive the discount, you have to mention that you are a Wayne State University student when you make your reservation.

If you do not make a reservation in advance of your arrival, and will call the shuttle service upon arriving at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, please allow 60 to 90 minutes for the shuttle service to reach the airport.

  • Your name
  • Name of the airline carrier

  • Date and time of the flight
  • Name of the arrival airport and specific location in the airport where you will be waiting for the shuttle service (e.g. near luggage collection area or front of the waiting lobby etc.)
