Express Service:

CATS Express buses will operate according to the July 12th schedule change. 

In April, CATS provided the following instructions to assist our customers with social distancing while riding.  

When you enter: 

  • Look for the yellow designated line to indicate 6’ from the operator.  

  • Do NOT sit in the seats with an “X” on them. Look for markings on the floor to indicate seats that are 6’ apart

  • We will work to ensure customer loads do not exceed 20 passengers per bus.

  • As a reminder we encourage all our riders to follow the CDC guidelines and wear a mask.

Starting on Wednesday, March 25, CATS will make modifications to transit service to accommodate the current demand. By operating modified service, CATS is able to continue providing the community access to essential daily needs, front-line jobs and medical services.

All service will be FREE during this time.  These changes are effective until further notice.
