Michigan Relay is a communications system that allows hearing persons and Deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-impaired persons to communicate by telephone. As mandated by the Michigan Public Service Commission, all providers of basic local exchange telephone service must share in the cost of providing the telecommunications relay service (TRS). Hamilton Relay works with the local exchange carriers in Michigan to provide this service. Users may reach Michigan Relay by dialing 7-1-1.
Michigan Relay is fast and easy to use. There is no additional charge to use this service. Only normal telephone charges will be applied. There are no limits to the length or number of calls you place.
