UCHRA On Schedule With Mass Transit Service

Officials with the Upper Cumberland Human Resources Agency say they are still on schedule to start offering a mass transit bus service in Cookeville next month. The buses are due to be delivered next week and will be part of the CATS system, which stands for Cookeville Area Transit Service. Three routes have been planned with numerous bus stops along the way. One includes an area around Tennessee Tech; one will circle the city of Cookeville, and a third will be offered on evenings and weekends, specifically to serve restaurants and movie theaters. The cost of a bus trip will be one dollar, and officials say they hope to have the service up and running by February 6th.
