Starting Out The Easy Way

For CATS to be successful, it also must be convenient. That's why the system operates more than 70 routes, transporting more than 25 million passengers each year. We're linking local and regional communities to jobs, medical facilities and entertainment. More than thirty local routes provide the flexibility of numerous stops within the city, with most operating from 4:49 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., Monday through Saturday, and 5:25 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. on Sundays. Twelve express routes provide quick transportation – with minimal stops – from the suburbs to the uptown area.
