Meetings for New Routes
On January 4th, 2014, Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) will kick off its newest route adjustments. Two meetings will be held at CitySpace to inform the public about the upcoming changes. The first meeting will be held on December 16th, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM and the second meeting will be held on December 28th, from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Both meetings will cover the same material. CitySpace is located at 100 5th St NE, Charlottesville, VA 22902. All members of the community are invited to attend. To see the new schedules, click here.
12/13 - Route 1B - On Friday, PVCC will be performing maintenance to their parking lots. This will effect service to and from the Dickinson Building. From 9 AM to 3 PM, the shelter near the Dickinson Building will not be served. Instead there will be a temporary stop along College Drive. From 3 PM to 10 PM, the temporary stop will move closer to the main building along College Drive. Regular service will return on Saturday, 12/14.
CAT is piloting a program to increase passenger visibility at low light bus stops. In the upcoming weeks you may find one of these installed at your bus stop. To use, simply slide the handle up and down. The motion reflects in our bus' headlights allowing our drivers to see you earlier. To see the instructional video, click here.
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.
