Lost & Found

Did you leave something on the bus?

People leave personal property on TCAT buses everyday. We love to reunite people with their lost items.
If you’ve left something on one of our buses we want to help you.

  • Valuables

    Did you lose your wallet, purse, phone or laptop?

    Valuable Lost and Found items such as wallets, purses, phones, laptops, credit cards, jewelry, bicycles, electronic items, and other valuable items can be reclaimed at the TCAT main office.

    If you have lost something valuable that you urgently need, such as a wallet or purse, please call us right away at (607) 277-7433 and it may be possible for you to arrange to meet that bus in the opposite direction to retrieve your items. The sooner you call, the more likely we will be able to track down the bus with your missing items. We will need to know the bus route, bus number (if possible) and what time you rode the bus.

Please bring photo I.D. with you (if it is not among your lost items)

We also need a thorough description of your lost property. All lost items are normally handed into the front office when the bus returns to the depot which is usually on the following day. On occasion items do get turned in on the same day they were lost.

PLEASE NOTE:  We only keep lost property items for 30 days.  After that time, items are donated.
