Cherokee Area Transit Service (N.C.) launches microtransit service pilot program

  • Date: 02/19/2024

Cherokee Area Transit Service (CATS) in Canton, Ga., has rebranded and introduced a new microtransit service pilot program.

A soft rollout of the new microtransit service pilot program began in January. The full launch of the program began Feb. 15.

“This is a new, more modern approach to public transportation,” said CATS Transit Director Greg Powell. “The traditional fixed route system is being replaced with microtransit, which translates to shorter wait times and a larger service area for our riders. While this is a pilot program to replace the former fixed route system in Canton, the plan is to further expand microtransit to other areas of the county in the future.”
