Bus Buddies Program
Our Bus Buddies Program pairs up experienced passengers or a Macatawa Area Express Transit Authority employee with new passengers to help you feel more confident about using our fixed route bus system. They will ride with you on the routes, help you plan trips, and offer other general tips. This program is offered to the general public free of charge. To request a Bus Buddy or to volunteer as a Bus Buddy, contact us online or contact our Customer Service team at (616) 355-1010.
If you’re brand new to the transit world, we offer another free program called Travel Training Classes that equips you with the knowledge of riding on our buses and routes.
