CATA Board Approves Service Expansion in Delta Township

Lansing, Mich. — At this afternoon’s meeting, CATA’s Board of Directors approved an agreement with Delta Township that adds new service to the Township. Delta Redi-Ride is a curb-to-curb demand-response service that will be available throughout Delta Township Monday through Saturday. The general public service enhances both access to jobs for township and urban residents working in the Township as well as mobility services for persons with disabilities.

Additional action taken by the Board of Directors authorized the suspension of the Zone 2 fare structure in Delta Township effective Monday, Aug. 25. Redi-Ride, Route 3, and Route 12 passengers will now pay $1.25 for a regular fare and 60 cents for the discounted fare. Spec-Tran rides will cost $2.50 each way starting next week.

“We are elated to bring a new level of service to Delta Township,” states Sandy Draggoo, CATA’s CEO/Executive Director. “The partnership with the Township creates regional seamless connections to the urban area while providing area residents with greater access to destinations throughout the Township. Customers and Delta residents have been asking for this service for many years and we are excited to be able to offer it.”

Delta Redi-Ride will operate Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. beginning Sept. 29, 2014. Redi-Ride requires a reservation at least 4 hours in advance of a ride. Transportation needed before 10:30 a.m. must be reserved by 5 p.m. the day before. Reservations can be made at (517) 394-CATA (2282).
