Charlottesville Area Transit (formerly Charlottesville Transit Service)[1] is the provider of mass transportation in Albemarle County, Virginia. The organization was formed in 1975 when the city bought out Yellow Transit Company, which held a private monopoly on city busing. In 1999, the agency took a big leap in terms of providing better service and gaining more ridership, as it established a free shuttle route (which is officially called a trolley, using green-painted trolley-style buses) connected downtown with the University of Virginia. In 2007, the University Transit Service and Charlottesville Area Transit entered into an open ridership agreement that allows UVA students, faculty, and staff ride CAT for free by showing a valid UVA ID card.[2] Eleven routes are offered Monday through Saturday from the early morning until the late evening, with four night buses serving most of the system until midnight. Sunday service is only available on the Free Trolley and Route 7.
