TCAT’s Summer Service Effective Sun. May 27

TCAT to launch pilot Route 14S to better connect West Hill residents with Southwest Shopping

TCAT’s summer service will be in effect from Sun., May 27, 2018, through Sat., Aug., 18, 2018. TCAT normally reduces service in the summer as most college students, many of whom are TCAT riders, leave the area for summer break.

Passengers should refer to online or printed schedules for specific changes to make sure that they are at their bus stops on time. The TCAT Summer Guide 2018 will be available online. The printed version will be available in the coming days at TCAT bus shelters, including Green St. Station and Seneca St. Station. Those who wish to have printed schedule mailed to them can call (607) 277-RIDE (7433) or email TCAT at, or stop by the front desk at TCAT, 737 Willow Ave., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mon.-Fri.
