CAT Prepares For Several Route Changes

The Monday reopening of the McCormick Road Bridge is triggering many changes for local mass transit. Charlottesville Area Transit will start letting its buses use the bridge to cross Emmet Street on Saturday. CAT will also send the Route 7 buses on a loop around the UVA Grounds that will start at the intersection of West Main Street and Jefferson Park Avenue. By Saturday, the #7 buses won’t stop on University Avenue. CAT Director John Jones is preparing for a Saturday launch of the new Route 11, which will go up Park Street and East Rio Road to get to Fashion Square. If you have questions about the looming changes, call 970-3649.
