Entertainment Express

Notice
CATA proposes to eliminate Route 4 – Entertainment Express service and replace it with extended hours on Route 1 – Downtown Lansing/Meridian Mall, effective March 7, 2019. To continue to provide service along the corridor until 3 a.m., as currently provided by Entertainment Express, operations on Route 1 will be extended on Thursdays by 3.5 additional hours, and Fridays and Saturdays by 1.5 additional hours. 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. This change would provide later service to more bus stops along the corridor and extended hours in Meridian Township. Return to this page for updates.
