WHO ARE WE?
Covering Bay City, Saginaw, and Midland. Every last mile of it.
Griffin Transit is based in the Tri-city area, working directly out of Bay City, Michigan. We cover the surrounding cities from our main dispatch office. We are simply here to offer a ride that's on time, every time. We do our best to be the most affordable, and safest ride offered. We have no peak (or spike - double or triple) rates, unlike Uber and Lyft, so no worries there. We also offer rides to the bars, airport (MBS, DTW, and Flint Bishop) and local drop off's in general. Additionally, we have special wedding rates! (Contact dispatch for our wedding packages). Whatever it might be, we've got you covered.

Give us a call, anytime - we are on it! We are driving many hours of the day, and even take preschedules for early morning! Our dispatcher is here to take your call. We take appointments to run you (to and from) the bar, the airport, or even that 4AM Detroit run (if called in advance). If you don't currently have your cell phone (we understand people misplace them often) then feel free to shoot us an email. We accept those too. Email not working? Try our Facebook link, we have an outstanding response time. Don't have Facebook? Send us a message through Google messenger! We keep your options open.
$3.00 in the door (covers the first three people) $2.00 a mile. $10.00 minimum fare required for Bay City residents. $15.00 minimum for Saginaw/Freeland residents. $20.00 minimum fare for Frankenmuth/Buena Vista/Midland residents.
As a service offered to our clients, we want to give back. Here's how we'll start. We're going to offer the cheapest pricing possible, because we understand that for many, times can be tough. We also offer discounted rates for senior's, students, and military. We also offer flat rates for airport to hotel runs. $10.00 minimum charge is applied to Bay City clients only. That rate is always X1, with no additional spike rates, despite the time of the day. Wait time and distance charge fees DO apply. Afterhours surcharge fees apply before 6am.
It's what we're about.
And we'll stick to it. Too many times, you end up calling for a ride, only for them to be incredibly late, or not even show up at all! No way, not on our watch! If we are running behind schedule, the dispatcher or driver will contact you personally, and let you know. We are good at what we do, (and not missing runs) and believe us when we say, "We take pride in that!" Our dispatcher's also have the best training to answer the phone most often times, and if they miss your call, (when dealing with another client) you will be called back momentarily.
It's what you're about.
Sure, we do our very best to offer the services needed to be there on time, and get you there on time, but what about the ride in between? Never an issue. Our driver's are friendly, funny, and willing to meet you on a personal level if you're up for a good chat. We offer quiet vehicles that are well maintained. They offer the ride and comfort you would expect to pay for, and with seating up to 4, your friends and family will feel the same way too.
Still unsure if our services are legitimate? Look and see what people are saying about us on the Yellowpages listings, and if you have any questions or complaints, feel free to comment. We have also added a donation button (Paypal) if you feel so inclined as to help out our operations! (We are a for-profit company, so no tax-deductions allowed, sorry).
Thanks ahead of time for your donations Any amount helps!
WHERE TO NEXT?
Yep, it's that simple. Get in, tell us where you're headed, and we'll point the vehicle to go that direction. 5 miles, or 500, we're down to drive it. All of our driver's have a chauffeurs license on hand, and have been through a specialized application/background check process to work for Griffin Transit.
Payment arrangements (and quotes) can be offered over the phone - from our dispatcher. You don't pay until your're finished using us, however. Our rates (as stated before) are X1 ALL THE TIME, unlike any Uber or Lyft in the area. No double or triple rates, EVER. Your payment's are made directly to the company, so no pesky apps to work with either. We currently accept cash and all major credit cards. (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover).
Note - Please try to have payment ready by the time the driver shows up, to ensure that the next person needing a ride also gets one of our vehicles to them on time.
WHAT TIMES ARE WE DRIVING, YOU MIGHT WONDER?
We know that much of the Tri-city never sleeps. We want to keep your options open. We are open more than 360 days a year, (closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas).
6AM - 12AM Sunday - Thursday, and 6AM - 2AM Friday and Saturday.
Booking In Advance: We take preschedules wwwaaaayyy ahead of time. In fact, we prefer preschedules (minimally) to be 24 hours in advance (if possible) to give our dispatchers and drivers time to get things arranged for your pickup. If you need to cancel we do ask that you call at least two hours in advance. Preschedules are eligible for a 5% discount if booked a week in advance (7-13 days). 10% discount for two weeks in advance (14+ days).
Other eligibility includes (10%):
These cannot be combined or stacked to offer an additional discount.
Airport Services: As mentioned earlier, we offer flat rates from the MBS airport. We strive to be the very competitive, charging $35 ($5 processing fee added for credit cards) to any hotel in the tri-city area. That's right, ANY hotel.
