Harrisburg, PA – Capital Area Transit (CAT) will shift bus routes to a modified schedule starting on Monday, April 6, 2020.  The safety, health and security of our customers, employees and our community is our top priority, therefore, CAT is taking additional steps to mitigate potential exposure of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Effective on Monday, April 6, 2020, and continuing until further notice, our weekday and weekend fixed bus routes will run on a modified schedule.

Until further notice, the following weekday routes have been temporarily stopped:

  • Route 2
  • Route 9
  • Route 23X
  • Route 27
  • Route 81X
  • Route 82X

All remaining routes have been modified to fit current service needs.  Modified schedules can be found HERE.

CAT continues, where able, rear boarding for all fixed routes. Customers must board the bus from the rear door to help with social distancing from the driver.  If any customer does need assistance and needs to use the front door, they will be permitted. Also, CAT continues no fare collection. Free fares began Monday, March 23, and will continue until further notice. 

Due to this public health crisis and out of an abundance of caution for CAT employees and the general public, CAT requests that passengers only ride for life-sustaining service (medically necessary, food access or employment).

Customers should continue to follow the guidelines established by the CDC and follow updates from the Governor. Those guidelines can be found at CDC.gov and www.health.pa.gov/Pages/default.aspx.
