Hoping she is found safe ASAP. 💙

This photo was taken in July of 1960 showing a bus leaving Market Square. This area is our transfer center today!

Although the main destination sign says “Special” the small windshield sign says “Island Parking”. Checking an old schedule dated for June of 1960, we learned that two buses provided the peak hour service on the City Island/ Downtown Shuttle back then. #FBF #flashbackfriday

CAT is proud to support the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) 30th Anniversary! Today we celebrate this important civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.

The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. #ADA30 #ThanksToTheADA
