Public Information

At its April 19, 2017, meeting, the CATA Board of Directors resolved to suspend the Bus Rapid Transit (“BRT”) project until such time as CATA has reasonable assurances as to the availability of adequate federal funding to support the BRT and authorized the CEO/Executive Director, Sandy L. Draggoo, to take actions to suspend the project on such terms and conditions as she deems necessary and are approved by legal counsel.

10.03.16, 10.04.16 & 10.05.16 Community Presentations & Project Update

CATA will host three presentations that focus on various modifications to the Bus Rapid Transit project that are currently being considered based on recent public input. CATA will present the pros, cons and impacts of each option; discuss any further analyses that may be required; and conduct a brief question-and-answer session. These presentations will represent a work in progress, not conclusive designs or plans. View the notice about the presentations and view the news article announcing the presentations
