CATS will from time-to-time make available newsrack slots at designated facilities.  If a CATS location (bus stops, transit centers, light rail stations, other CATS facilities) is not listed below, it is NOT available for placement of newsracks.  Any such newsrack placed in an ineligible location will be handled occurring according to the CATS Newsrack Policy.

Placement:
Newsracks shall not be bolted or otherwise fixed to any CATS Property without prior written permission from CATS, nor placed anywhere that impedes the mobility of customers or inhibits customers protected under any ADA requirement.
To ensure the good flow of passengers, newsracks must have at least three (3) feet clearance from:
  • driveway, crosswalk, or crosswalk extension
     
  • public work of art
     
  • maintenance cabinet
     
  • entrance to sidewalk dining enclosure
     
  • handicap access ramp
     
  • valet parking stand
In addition, under no circumstance can a newsrack be placed within thirty (30) feet of the ballast curbline of any CATS light rail tracks. For a complete listing of the requirements and restrictions of placement of newsracks at CATS facilities please read CATS Newsrack Policy.
