Employee Bus Pass Information

All regular MSU employees can use their Employee ID card to ride CATA’s campus bus service for free on Routes 30 through 39, Lot Link and Night Owl only!

Your MSU ID card serves as your employee bus pass. All eligible employees are programmed in the system to use this feature. When you enter the bus, you swipe the magnetic stripe on your ID card through the bus fare box.

The pass is only available when the campus Spartan Service is in operation and does not include the breaks or summer semesters. It is intended solely for your use while on campus and is not transferable to another person.  Employee spouses, retirees and affiliates are not eligible.
