Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT)

This transportation option does not have any reviews! Leave one now!


  • $0.75 for single bus ride (one bus, one route)

  • $1.50 for all day pass

Helpful Notes:

  • Pay cash (exact change) or check to the bus driver, can also buy tickets for trips from the driver or at the Downtown Transit Station

  • Stops are a little more rushed than stops for Jaunt and drivers tend to have less time to help riders with mobility issues due to the amount of people who ride these busses

  • There is a ramp (or a lift on a few CAT busses) that can be used for riders so that they do not have to go up any steps
