To me, CATA is like a household name. CATA is always there to take you to your desired destination and back.

According to WILX, CATA is preparing to reopen its public facilities following the relaxation of Governor Gretchen Whitmer's stay home order.

It's great knowing that very soon, CATA transportation will be up and running again. Over the years I've used CATA many times, from South Lansing to Downtown Lansing and from Lansing to the Meridian Mall.

Most recently, CATA said passes and tokens will be reinstated. Those in need of a bus pass may place an order online at

Coming up on Monday, June 15, not only will hair salons be open throughout Michigan, CATA's fare payment and front door boarding will be reinstated.

As far as following strict guidelines, CATA said social distancing and face covering requirements on buses will extend to all public facilities, in addition to the current vehicle sanitization protocol.

Even though CATA has provided fare free services since March 19, all fixed route paratransit passengers should plan to pay the one way cash fare or use a bass pass when boarding.

CATA Chief Executive Officer Brad Funkhouser said, we appreciate our riders patience and understanding as we continue to ensure their and our employees safety and well being during the pandemic. We are grateful for those in our community for their unwavering support.
