Shop the Gratiot Loop runs every Friday.  Four Tuesdays (November 30, December 7, 14 and 21) have been added to help make holiday shopping a little easier. Riders are brought to their choice of five stores in the Gratiot shopping corridor:

  • Walmart at 12 Mile and Gratiot;
  • Meijer at 13 Mile and Little Mack;
  • Kroger at 13 Mile and Little Mack;
  • Macomb Mall at Masonic and Gratiot;

To reserve a ride, call (313) 394-9712 Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 2:30pm.   Passengers are picked up between 9 and 10am at their home, dropped off at their store of choice, picked up about 1pm and returned home.  Reservations must be made at least two days in advance.

Note: Due to the holidays, the PAATS buses will not be operational Thursday, November 25, Friday, November 26; Friday, December 24 or Friday, December 31.
