New CATA Buses Have Arrived

Have you noticed the shiny, modern-looking CATA buses around campus and downtown recently? Last week, CATA unveiled 11 of its 28 new transportation buses that they’ve been saving funds for over the past several years. CATA has invested approximately $5 million in the initial group of buses.

The 17 other buses, made available by a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation, are expected to arrive later this spring. This is the first time CATA has acquired new buses in over ten years. The new vehicles cost about $450,000 each.

The new buses feature LED lights, upgraded bike racks, a wider rear door and better aerodynamics. More importantly, these buses are expected to be much quieter, which will no doubt be a welcoming sign for the morning walk-of-shame hangovers.
