CATS to Resume Fare Collection


Earlier this week CATS announced fare-free transit service to help provide citizens with access to essential workplaces during the temporary shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline.

As pipeline operations return to normal, CATS will resume fare collection across the transit system on Monday, May 17.

Riders using the system will be expected to have a valid pass, ticket or exact cash fare to ride. CATS continues to be in coordination with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Emergency Management.
