Introducing BATA's free Bayline bus route! 


COVID-19 Update


Service Alert: Starting May 17, 2021 bus frequency on the Bayline is being decreased, which will cause a slightly longer delay between buses. 


Service Alert: Minor Bayline impacts due to the upcoming intersection closure at Parsons Road and Airport Access Road starting April 26 – June 25, 2021. The Bayline Airport Access / E-fulfillment stop (#9372) will be permanently moving to Indian Trail Blvd. The Bayline will still be able to service its Airport Access Munson Community Health stop (#9371) and other eastbound stops along Parsons road including the Aero Park Drive and Career Tech Center stops. We apologize for the inconvenience.


The Bayline busline runs seven days a week from 6 am–9 pm daily, with buses every 17-20 minutes and free rides, thanks to our sponsors. 

  • Free to ride, thanks to our 2019-2020 sponsors: Munson Healthcare, National Cherry Festival, Traverse City Tourism, Traverse City Film Festival, TC Parking Services, DDA/DTCA, East Bay Township Beach District, TC Suds and Snow
