Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) is creating a Transit Strategic Plan to improve bus service over the next ten years. Transit Strategic Plans are required for transit agencies operating in metropolitan areas of Virginia to ensure that transit services are planned to better meet their communities' mobility needs. This presents CAT with an opportunity to evaluate and update our services and network to respond to changes in our community.
CAT's inaugural Transit Strategic Plan will be developed based on guidelines approved by the Commonwealth Transportation Board and overseen by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). This Transit Strategic Plan will replace CAT’s Transit Development Plan from 2018 as the key planning document shaping bus service in the Charlottesville area in the coming years. We want your input on bus service in Charlottesville whether you are a current rider, past rider, and even if you haven’t ridden the bus yet. We appreciate your input!
