Charlottesville Area Transit has changed one of its busiest routes, and Albemarle residents who live near East Rio Road have new options. CAT has reconfigured the stops for Route 7, and the main feature is a new loop that starts where Jefferson Park Avenue meets West Main Street. CAT Director John Jones says Route 7 buses are no longer going down University Avenue. They are now going on JPA until it merges with Emmet Street. CAT has also launched Route 11 which has a Monday through Saturday schedule. These buses go up Park Street and the neighborhoods near East Rio before they get to Fashion Square.
