(Harrisburg) — Capital Area Transit (CAT) will conduct two public CAT-Connect meetings in the Allison Hill community of the City of Harrisburg next week to review bus route changes which will result from the closure of the Mulberry Street Bridge by PennDOT for major repairs in late March or early April.
“We want to assure public involvement in planning transportation services in various communities,” Robert Philbin, CAT Director of Planning, Customer Experience and Public Communication, said today.
“Working with local social service agencies, these meetings will explain the detour routes and other schedule changes and accommodate public access to Hamilton Health Center and other community destinations,” he added. “Other public meetings will be scheduled in the near future.”
The “CAT-Connect” Harrisburg Mulberry Street Bridge Closure meetings will be held next week, in conjunction with Hamilton Health Center, Tri-County Community Action, and Derry Street United Methodist Church, at two locations in Allison Hill:
Wednesday, February 19
Resident’s’ Association Meeting
Derry Street United Methodist Church
1508 Derry Street, Harrisburg, PA
Monday, February 24
Hamilton Health Center
110 South 17th Street
“The CAT-Connect program is an ongoing series of community involvement meetings as part of CAT’s strategic plan to assure CAT is meeting and exceeding customer expectation by promoting community involvement as an integral part of Capital Area Transit service design plans,” Bill Jones, CAT General Manager, commented today.
Celebrating its 40th Anniversary, CAT was incorporated in 1973 when Cumberland County and Dauphin County Commissioners and the City of Harrisburg organized Capital Area Transit to provide mass transit fixed-route and Paratransit shared-ride services, which today conveniently and safely transports about 3 million riders a year in the capital region.
