Capital Area Transit - CAT can you please get your drivers under control? They have zero regard for other drivers and constantly merge into other lanes despite other vehicles already occupying those lanes. I was almost past a driver but he decided to merge anyway forcing me to swerve and slam on my brakes as he wouldnโ€™t stop. When is this going to be addressed? After they seriously I jur someone??
Is it true that CAT will no longer print out paper schedules?
Hope I get that monthly pass kinda love walking in Pennsylvania but a monthly pass sounds nice like this post like Cat and have a bless day Everyone #OneLove
Thank you CAT! I won the Wheels and deals drawing and took a friend to dinner at PJ Whelihans using the gift card you gave me! Everything was scrumptious and the service was excellent! Your gift made it possible! Thank you for all that you do!
Why do the drivers turn OFF their tracking device? Why is it not automatically on and not able to be turned off when the bus is done for the day? Your interactive map is a joke when the drivers won't keep the trackers on at ALL times.
I love all three
When are you going to go back to paying bus fares again?
Bus still running
