Your Transit Department


Did you know there are two committees in Battle Creek that pertain to transportation services in Battle Creek where you can volunteer your time as a member?

The Local Coordinating Committee (LCC):  The purpose of the LCC is to serve as an advisory body for the coordination and improvement of transportation services.  The LCC is also empowered to adjust Specialized Services funding between the current and new sub-applicants.

The Local Advisory Council (LAC):  The LAC shall advise Battle Creek Transit and the Battle Creek City Commission in areas relating to the planning, delivery, and operation of demand response/paratransit services provided by Battle Creek Transit pursuant to the federal requirements of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990, 42 USC 12101 et seq.

Both committee membership is voluntary and non-paid.   Members are expected to attend committee meetings, generally held 4 times a year on the 2nd Tuesday of January, June, September and November with the LCC meeting at 1:30 p.m. and the LAC meetings immediately following.  All meetings are held at Battle Creek Transit, 339 W. Michigan Avenue in Battle Creek.  Our 1W - West Michigan Bus stops in front of our office going both outbound and inbound.

The Battle Creek City Commission, upon recommendation by the Battle Creek Area Transit, may by resolution appoint committee members.  Students, residents, older adults, and people with disabilities who use the transit system are encouraged to volunteer.

All interested individuals must complete an application and submit it to the City Manager's office no later than noon on August 26th to be added to the committee for our September meeting.  You can find information about the various City Boards and Committees, as well as an application on the City of Battle Creek Website.  Or, to fill out an application electronically, simply click on the following link:
