The Capital Area Transportation Authority will host public meetings to:

  • Introduce and invite, review and comment, regarding CATA’s proposed Fiscal 2019 Strategic Plan for adoption on March 7, 2019; and
  • Review proposed modifications to late-night service along the Michigan Avenue/Grand River Avenue corridor, as follows:

CATA proposes to replace Route 4 – Entertainment Express service with extended hours on Route 1 – Downtown Lansing/Meridian Mall, effective March 7, 2019. Route 1 buses would operate every 40 minutes between 11:35 p.m. and 3 a.m. on Thursdays, and between 1:35 a.m. and 3 a.m on Fridays and Saturdays. The change would provide later service to more bus stops along the corridor and extended hours in Meridian Township.              

Details regarding each proposal are available online as follows:

Representatives from CATA will be present at the open-forum public meetings listed below between 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. There will be no formal presentation, which will allow CATA staff to meet and interact with attendees one-on-one. Public comment is welcome.
