As of April 30, 2014 there is a new CATA MSU campus representative, Deb Kirby.
She’s your go-to person for any CATA related issues you observe or experience on campus. Her email: firstname.lastname@example.org and campus office phone #: (517) 432-0888
FYI: Here’s a link to a very well-done video created by the Chicago ATA that CATA has been using for their driver training. http://vimeo.com/7949969
It’s also got very helpful advice for bicyclists to safely interact with buses, so take the time and watch it to learn more about staying out of trouble on our roads.
Note: The painted-on bus #, location, direction of travel and time of day of an incident is critical as the digital bus route numbers change throughout the day.
Nervous about putting your bike on a CATA bus rack?
CATA has a great web page describing their bike-related services including using the bike racks on all of their buses. Watch this (non-CATA) video to see how easy it is! The racks in the video may be slightly different than CATA’s but it’ll give you a real good idea of how easy it is.
Bike lockers are also available for rent at the CATA Transportation Center (CTC), downtown Lansing, 420 South Grand Ave. The units are located on the northeast side of the building.
