Our Mission at Mecosta Osceola Transit Authority is to improve mobility and quality of life for all people in Mecosta and Osceola Counties by providing efficient and responsive transportation

With the easing of travel restrictions issued by Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-21, MOTA has resumed normal transportation activities, schedules, and fares. MOTA continues to sanitize all buses before, during, and after service runs. MOTA uses an electrostatic dispenser to disperse a disinfectant that takes 5 seconds to kill the Covid-19 virus before your bus goes into service. Drivers also have micro mist spray bottles with this disinfectant to use during their shift.
UPDATE! MOTA has reduced Monday thru Friday hours from 10 pm to 7 pm to reflect actual use of our service. We look forward to reinstating the lengthened hours in the future should demand warrant it.
Both routes in Mecosta County have been converted to Demand Response. While there was interest in Route Service the use does not justify the cost of this type of service. In an effort to be a good steward of the trust placed in MOTA we have converted both Routes to Demand Response.

In an effort to be a good steward of the trust placed in MOTA we have converted both Routes to Demand Response. The coming of the New Year will however see a return of the U.S. 10 Corridor run. This popular service will return by mid January and will be a deviated route between Evart, Hersey, and Reed City following U.S. 10. The flexibility of a deviated route allows for riders "off the beaten path" (within reason of course) to still be able to use it. Connecting service to the greater Big Rapids area is being looked at and will be determined by your demand.
