NOTE: The Bayline Meijer stop (#9010) has moved closer to the building across from the Garden Center and the Telsa charging stations. This new shelter location will serve as a combined City Loop Route 4 and Bayline stop and be the only fixed route stop at Meijer on US-31. This stop location near the Meijer Car Wash will no longer receive Bayline service starting Monday, January 6, 2020.


Due to construction, the Bayline stop at Traverse City Tourism (Garland Street) will be relocated to Front & Union (Record-Eagle) until further notice. Effective Monday, February 17th
