Eatran's Next Stop

Graphic by Charity Treat


The Eaton County Transportation Authority (EATRAN) provides public transportation

services to Eaton County residents through open-door, curb-to-curb rides within the

county; out-of-county medical trips and an express bus to downtown Lansing. Eaton

County residents currently pay a 0.25 mill property tax to support EATRAN. Efforts are

underway to improve service and regional transportation connections, including

communities in Charlotte, Eaton Rapids, Dimondale, Grand Ledge, Olivet, Potterville,

Bellevue and Delta Township. The system currently operates from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Monday through Friday.

To: All local media.

What: Press event hosted by EATRAN, in partnership with Delta Charter

Township and the Capital Area Transportation Authority. EATRAN

will announce the county’s first-ever transit study – EATRAN’s

Next Stop – Your Voice Chooses Where We Go.

Eaton County will launch a study to evaluate demand for EATRAN

services and to explore how to adapt to the transportation needs of

county residents and businesses, including the potential for a more

regionally coordinated transit system. The study will identify potential

future service options that could meet the county’s diverse mobility

needs and develop an action-oriented plan for how to implement

preferred solutions.
