Capital Area Transit System (CATS) will hold a series of informational sessions to discuss the upcoming Service Improvement Plan implementation, which will take effect on Sunday, February 24, 2019. There will be four sessions in both Baton Rouge and Baker to meet with customers and the public.

"We want to ensure that we are communicating our changes to our customers in as many ways as possible," said CATS CEO Bill Deville. "We have produced new maps and schedules in multiple languages, and we have been sharing information with the public via our website and social media channels. We see these informal sessions as another chance to engage our customers and the community," Deville continued. 

Members of CATS staff will be on hand to discuss the approaching service change and answer questions related to route and stop information. 

Additionally, CATS will be waiving fares the week of implementation. From February 24th through March 2nd, no customer on fixed-route or paratransit service will pay to ride.
