Welcome to Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS).  
 
Carolyn FlowersCATS is the mass transit provider to the region.  Public transportation is a lifeline to our community.  During the past ten years we have expanded our bus system and provided more local as well as commuter express services.  Recently the bus rapid transit services were added with the Sprinter service to the airport.  In November 2007, 9.6 miles of light rail service was opened in the South Corridor.  Engineering studies are continuing on transit options in other corridors.  We are actively working on transit alignments in the Northeast and North corridors of the County.  We are coordinating with local and state partners concerning transit options in the Independence Avenue corridor.
 
Our objective is to provide the best information about services.  We want to expand your knowledge about our operations and the transit network and services that we offer to this community. 
 
Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality of services; services that are safe, reliable and convenient.
