CATA Announces New Fixed-Route Service Line

CATA works with the City of Lansing to bring a new bus route to citizens.

A partnership between the cities of Lansing and East Lansing, Michigan State University, and the Capital Area Transportation Authority has resulted in a new fixed-route service that connects south Lansing with East Lansing. The route was announced at a media event Monday morning.

Route 18, dubbed the Capital City Crosstown, will launch Aug. 30 and link Lansing neighborhoods with McLaren Greater Lansing and MSU/East Lansing. The route will include new shelters.

“This is the first major route implementation since 2018,” said Bradley T. Funkhouser, CEO for CATA. “We heard the needs of the citizens of this area and have been working with the city of Lansing and the city of East Lansing to bring it together.”

Along with Funkhouser, other speakers at Monday’s event included Lansing Mayor Andy Schor and Dusty Fancher, vice chairperson of the CATA board of directors.

After remarks, people were invited to tour the bus that would be running along the route and to take a ride along the route.
