To encourage outdoor recreation and provide accessible transportation options, CATA is offering free curb-to-curb rides to Burchfield Park in Delhi Township, Lake Lansing Park South & North in Meridian Township and Hawk Island Park in the City of Lansing.

Through the provision of free rides, CATA and the Ingham County Parks and Recreation Department seeks to remove any potential transportation and parking obstacles that may otherwise prevent families, outdoor enthusiasts and people of all ages from experiencing these wonderful amenities.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to take advantage of this exciting initiative, get on board a CATA bus and embark on a memorable journey to explore the beautiful parks of Ingham County. Visit for more details.
