Albemarle Co. (Virg.) launches on-demand microtransit vans

  • Date: 10/30/2023

On Monday morning, Albemarle County launched a new on-demand public transportation system for two areas outside the traditional bus routes. WMRA's Randi B. Hagi reports.

The Charlottesville Area Transit system – CAT for short – has expanded their services with MicroCAT – a fleet of Toyota Sienna minivans that will connect more of the county's 115,000 residents with the public transportation system. People can request a fare-free ride on the MicroCAT app or with a phone call, and get picked up in the Pantops area or Route 29 corridor north of the city up to Piney Mountain.
