The Ultimate CATA Bus Wish List

As much as we shouldn’t take the CATA Buses for granted, they could certainly use some improvements. After becoming a seasoned White Loop rider, here are some changes that I think would improve the CATA experience for all of us.

Better Ventilation

There is nothing worse than a packed, humid White Loop. It’s awful in August, and it’s awful in January. Every time I step on the bus and my glasses fog up, a small part of me dies. Better ventilation would not only make crowded Whoops and Bloops less humid, but it would also rid them of that distinct stale bus smell.

Party Mode

This one is for the late night Whoopers. When the clock strikes 10 p.m. on the weekends, the Loops should switch into party mode — which is just the regular Loop but with disco lights, and it plays music. Whoop! There it is. We’re here for the kids.

Accordion Bus

The addition of the supreme XL accordion city-bus, in my opinion, is the biggest improvement CATA can make to its Loop services. Gone would be the days of getting hopelessly stranded at the bus stop in the morning, as White Loops pass by, full to the brim. Plus, accordion buses are infinitely cooler than regular buses. They’re like riding in a giant slinky. We can all fight for that seat right in the middle of the accordion. That’s prime real estate, baby.

One Hella Boujee Bus

All CATA needs to do is buy one brand new, state-of-the-art bus and disperse it randomly on the Loop routes. Then, whenever you are lucky enough to come across the majestic boujee bus, it will be an instant day maker. Let’s be honest — at a certain point, morale gets so low that even riding a cool bus will improve our spirits.

Maximum Overdrive

Oh no, I’m gonna be late to my 9 a.m….
