CATA To Reinstate & Raise Fares Starting August 1

The Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA) announced it will increase its CATABUS and CATAGO! base fare from $2 to $2.20 starting Saturday, August 1.

The increase in the base fare matches the percentage increase to most other passes and fare media. CATA will also reinstate fares on CATABUS, CATAGO!, and CATARIDE services. Each service will operate under the same modified schedule announced in June until further notice.

Additionally, this is the first time CATA has raised fares since 2017.

Below, you’ll find a neat chart of current and future fare prices provided by’s Geoff Rushton.

CATA has also reopened its Customer Service Center Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Customers are required to wear masks and maintain social distancing while visiting the office.

CATABUS resumed several of its routes under a modified schedule on Monday, June 8, after reducing its service amid the coronavirus pandemic back in March. Riders are required to wear proper face masks at all times and board through the back entrance unless they are physically unable.
