CAT Fare Increase Effective October 1st

A Capital Area Transit (CAT) fare increase will be implemented on October 1, 2014. This increase will allow CAT to continue to make improvements to bus services and facilities.

Projected revenues from the first year of the fare increase will be used to provide additional holiday service and designated route improvements. For more information regarding these improvements, visit the City of Raleigh’s website at www.raleighnc.gov/transit and click on “January 2015 Service Improvements.”
