Smart Commute Challenge 2015


Taking public transportation is much easier than you may think.  It saves you gas and the stress of driving in rush hour traffic.  Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) offers discounted passes for those who are eligible.  You can find out the nearest bus stop to your home and map out a route.  You can decide to ride public transportation later and familiarize yourself with the pickup time and the routes.  Your first time on the bus, just ask the bus driver if you are going in the right direction.    Saying “good morning” to the driver is a great way to start the day!  If you ride, give yourself some kudos for reducing pollution.  Not having the cost of parking and the walk to the bus stop is also beneficial.   For more information, call CATA  at 517-394-1100 or log on to
