Introducing BATA's free Bayline bus route!
Service Alert: Due to continued staffing shortages, BATA has had to adjust its service delivery to match the staffing resources currently available. Bayline weekday service will only have 20-minute frequency with no weekend service. The Bayline route will also now end at Meijer on US-31/Division and Tom’s East Bay to try and maintain frequency.
Service Options: Needs to get to the Grand Traverse Mall? Try City Loop Route 1. Need to get to Woodland Creek? Try Village Loop Route 14 - Acme Williamsburg. Link On-Demand service is also available to both of these locations.
