Fixed Route Service

The Twin Cities Area Transportation Authority (TCATA) provides fixed route service which follows a defined route, picking up and dropping off passengers at designated stops. It is recommended you arrive at the bus stop 5-10 minutes early to ensure you do not miss the bus.

Fixed route service offers a significant cost savings over Dial a Ride curb-curb service - the fares are only $1 each way (50 cents for seniors, children, and persons with disabilities)!

Blue Route

Also known as "The Special" or the "Line Haul" route, the Blue Route makes a one-hour loop through Benton Harbor and the Benton Township (Fairplain) retail area. The Blue Route runs twice an hour, servicing some locations four times an hour.

Red Route

The Red Route makes a one-hour loop through Benton Harbor, St. Joseph, St. Joseph Township, and Stevensville.
