Welcome to Charlottesville Area Transit!
CAT provides bus service to the greater Charlottesville area. Riders enjoy safe, clean and comfortable service Monday through Sunday.
Due to a partial lane closure on W Main St, several of our routes will detour from December 6th to December 9th. Only routes heading in the eastbound direction will be affected.
Routes 4, and Route 6 will be unable to serve the W Main St @ 11th St stop (#11138). Passengers that usually board the bus at this stop should walk over to Lee St and board the bus at UVA Hospital @ Lee St (#16701)
The Free Trolley and Route 7 will not serve the W Main St @ 11th St stop (#11138). Instead passengers should use a temporary stop located at the corner of W Main St and Roosevelt Brown Blvd.
Route 9 will not serve the 14th St @ Wertland (southbound) stop (#11724). Passengers should use the 14th St @ Virginia Ave stop (#11822).
Did you know that you can save up to $25 a month by purchasing a Monthly Pass? Monthly passes only cost $20 (regular fare) or $10 (reduced fare). Passes are valid from the first calendar day of the month to the end of the month. Passes can be purchased from CAT's customer service window at the Downtown Transit Station, 615 E Water St.

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 for further issues.
