Children may accompany their parents as guests. When riding in a small bus, safety restraints are not required. However, any child who rides in a CATA Spec-Tran van will be required to adhere to Michigan Law concerning safety restraints while in the van. Children under the age of eight must be in approved safety seats, wherever they are seated. For children less than 20 pounds, the child or infant seat must face the rear of the vehicle, according to the standard in the Code Federal Regulations. Children eight years or younger or less than 4’9” tall must have a booster seat. CATA customers must provide the appropriate safety restraints. Failure to provide proper safety equipment at the time of the trip will result in the ride being cancelled and a no-show being assessed.
