For years students have been begging Michigan State University's CATA busses to allow students to ride for free, claiming that the $50 bus pass EACH semester is a little bit ridiculous considering the amount that students already pay just to attend the school. Even MSU's biggest rival in all aspects, University of Michigan, allows their students to ride their public transportation for free. So why couldn't the Spartans as well?

On July 18, 2018, MSU announced that for the first time, students would be allowed to ride the CATA buses that run on campus for free. Although there is some concern about how the already over-populated busses will handle more riders, one thing's for sure: Spartans are looking forward to spending their bus fare elsewhere.
