CATA’s Spartan Service concludes as students gear up for winter break

Lansing, MI — As MSU students head into finals week, CATA prepares to implement its winter break schedule on a number of routes beginning Monday, Dec. 15.  Spartan Service routes operating on MSU’s campus will conclude for the break as follows:

Weekend MSU Campus Service: Routes 34, 35, 36 and Lot Link will operate in accordance with regular Saturday and Sunday service schedules through 2 a.m. Monday, Dec. 15.

In addition to all MSU campus service concluding, Spartan Service levels provided on Routes 1, 23, 25, 26 and Entertainment Express will end and reduced service levels will be in place as described below. For
