Capital Area Transit (CAT) is assessing existing transit service and establishing a vision for what transit should be in 2021 and the future. The CAT 2021 service redesign aims to provide efficient and effective public transportation in Dauphin county and portions of Cumberland county.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic throughout 2020, our proposed CAT2020 network redesign was postponed. CAT2020, now known as CAT2021, has resumed and we are seeking public comment until June 13 on proposed service adjustments.

For visually impaired persons, please call 717-233-5657 or email info@cattransit.com.

Below are descriptions of each service adjustment along with a link to the proposed route timetable. Please review the changes below and leave your feedback by clicking the “COMMENT” button.
