  • Service Alert: Starting Monday, Nov. 5 BATA is making adjustments to City Loop Route 3 and one run on Village Loop Route 13 based on low ridership. These changes will help BATA improve delivery and adjust service to match rider demand.


    What BATA services are being impacted by these adjustments?

    City and Village Loop (Weekday Service Only):

    City Loop Route 3B – Route 3A will continue hourly service between the East Bay Plaza and the Grand Traverse Mall seven days a week. Route 3B service will be temporarily halted.

    Route 13B – The 4:30 p.m. Outbound run from Hall Street / 5:30 Inbound run from Kingsley are being discontinued due to limited use.


    Service Alert:  Village Loop Route 14 servicing Williamsburg-Acme can’t currently service the Father Fred stop (#1426 and #1427) due to road construction on Hastings. Please consider using City Loop Route 5 at Garfield and Centre as a close alternative. Please call BATA Customer Service at 231.941.2324 for more information. (Updated: 10.19.18)


    Service Alert: Bus stops located at Cass and Lake (#205 and #275), Cass and Front (#277) and Cass and Union (#203) in downtown Traverse City are still inaccessible due to road construction in the area. This construction is impacting City Loop Route 2 and Village Loop Route 13 serving Kingsley. We apologize for the inconvenience and will start servicing those stops again as soon as the construction allows – which should be early to mid-November. Route 2 is using Union in the interim and riders can board Route 2 at the Route 1 stops at Union and 7th (Outbound only) and Union and 8th (Inbound only). Please call BATA Customer Service at 231.941.2324 for more information.
