Teen Ride Program
In an effort to promote public transportation as a viable and sustainable source of transportation among area teens, Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) has instated a new pilot program, expanding its Teen Ride Program to all high school aged students through June 30th, 2013. Based upon the success of the Charlottesville High School (CHS) ride program, students in grades nine through twelve will have the ability to ride any CAT bus free of charge. This will include home schooled students, county school students, and private school students. To ride fare free, students will simply show their student ID or CAT issued phot ID.
