FREE Summer Youth Ride Program
Each summer, CAT offers a Youth Ride FREE program that is open to residents of the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Thousands of students take advantage of unlimited access to convenient, environmentally-friendly public transit during the summer break.
The program goes into effect the first day of summer vacation and ends the day prior to the new school year. Students between the ages of 6 and 18 are eligible to participate. Simply show your school's student ID to ride. No ID? No worries, we'll provide you with a CAT ID. For details, click here.
Thanks to everyone who came out to hear Nelson\Nygaard's Final Recommendations on March 18th, 2013. A copy of the slide presentation has been posted online .
Real-Time Information and 3rd Party Apps
It has come to our attention that smartphone users may not have reliable access to CAT’s real time information through their third party transit apps. While we love the added convenience of these apps, we have little to no control over their development. For reliable information, we recommend that users utilize our website or call our real-time information line at 434-244-5180. Again, we apologize about the inconvenience and recommend that you contact your app developer with any further issues.
