AAA Michigan predicts rise in Thanksgiving travel


DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — AAA Michigan says the number of state residents traveling this Thanksgiving is expected to increase about 7 percent from a year ago.

The auto club on Tuesday released its annual Thanksgiving forecast. It says 1.34 million Michigan residents will travel 50 miles or more from home during the holiday period, which runs Nov. 21-25.

AAA says 89 percent of Michigan travelers will go by vehicle, down from last year's 90 percent. In Michigan, 8 percent will go by air, on par with last year, while the remaining 3 percent will go by train or bus.

The forecast comes as AAA predicts 43.6 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles from home over Thanksgiving, up 0.7 percent from last year.
