Redi-Ride

Redi-Ride is an advance-reservation, curb-to-curb service, operating Monday through Saturday in the city of Mason and the townships of Delhi and Meridian.

Fares are the same as fixed-route service (except on Meridian Redi-Ride, see below).

You can make transfers between services. Ask your driver for a transfer as you pay the fare upon boarding. Transfers are good for two hours and can be used up to two times for travel in one direction.

Transferring to a lower-fare service or from a Redi-Ride service to fixed-route service is free. However, transfers from fixed-route service to a Redi-Ride service will not be accepted. When transferring to a higher-fare service (such as CATA Rural Service), the difference in fares must be paid when you give the driver your transfer ticket.

Transportation is not provided to or from schools where school bus transportation is available to a student.

Cameras on Board Paratransit Vehicles

In April 2018 CATA contracted with Transdev, an international public transit services company, to assist with transporting CATA’s paratransit customers. With this new partnership comes a new initiative—cameras on board.

For the safety of our drivers, passengers and community, all small buses and minivans operated by Transdev will be equipped with technology that records audio and video of activities occurring inside and/or outside the vehicle. This technology is powered by Lytx in partnership with Transdev and CATA.
