Curb-to-Curb & Paratransit

CATA offers a variety of advance-reservation, curb-to-curb services that will take you to your destination.

When most people think of CATA, they think of big buses picking up customers at bus stops. But there are additional services available to get you where you need to go - near a bus route, within a township, in rural Ingham County or on MSU’s campus.

Paratransit services utilize smaller buses and minivans and run curb-to-curb which means you are picked up at your curb and taken to your destination. As a demand-response service, all rides must be reserved in advance. This applies to the following services:

  • CRS
  • Lot Link
  • Night Owl
  • Redi-Rides
  • Spec-Tran

Connector and Shopping Bus operate on a regular schedule, therefore ride reservations are not required.

CRS, Lot Link, Night Owl, Mason Connector, and Redi-Rides No-Show Rules (Excludes Spec-Tran)
