Lansing, MI - In observance of Christmas and New Year’s Day, CATA will not operate services on Tuesday, December 25 or Tuesday, January 1.

Route 1 will depart at 6:00PM. Final CTC departures for routes with a 60-minute frequency - Routes 7, 11, 13, 15 and 16 - will be at 6:15PM.
  • Routes 20 and 26 will depart from the MSU/CATA Transportation Center for the last time at 5:55PM.
