The printed version will be available in the coming days at TCAT bus shelters, including Green St. Station and Seneca St. Station.

Based on analysis and rider feedback, TCAT’s Service Development team made adjustments on trips and added trips to some routes to improve service. The team will continue to analyze ridership over the fall service period to evaluate the effectiveness of the changes.

Some highlights:

Route 14S or 14 Shopper: This pilot route was initiated this past summer to offer more convenience to West Hill residents as the route enables them to travel directly to southwest shopping areas. TCAT is pleased to announce that the route has proven successful so far and will continue into the fall. Based on riders’ suggestion, early evening weekday trips were shifted to late-morning trips starting the fall service period. In addition, TCAT added a midday trip to the weekend schedule.

Routes 36 & 37:  TCAT held public meetings and reached out to Lansing riders to improve service to that area. Based on feedback, TCAT added service on the Route 36 to serve Lansing High School. TCAT also added four additional trips during the day on Route 37, which will now provide service to Lansing Town Hall. TCAT advises commuters to use Lansing Town Hall as a park-and-ride location due to increased trips to that location.

Route 83: This academic-year-only route now has a total of six additional afternoon and evening trips to better serve West Campus residents coming home from school or work.

Route 90:  Sunday service will resume for the academic year with six additional trips this fall, based on riders’ suggestions.
