CATS Announces New EXPRESS ROUTE To The Flagship
Flagship companies have indicated a need for an increase in employees and a need for safe and reliable public transportation. Three of the four largest companies in the Flagship Center (Xerox, Alliance One and Teleservices Direct) want to add 500 jobs to that area by the end of August totaling 2,000 jobs, with one company willing to purchase monthly bus passes to get their employees to work.
The routes will begin at the CATS downtown terminal at the top of the hour from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm and continue non-stop to Flagship. They will take approximately 15 minutes. The return trip will include stops at Central Indiana Orthopedics and Redbud Trailer Park, which will alleviate congestion from the existing South Madison Bus Route. The return trip will take approximately 30 minutes.
This EXPRESS ROUTE will be completed as a “trial run” for 60 days. Ridership is the key for this program to continue on a permanent basis.
Specific route times and days can be found on the CATS facebook page (City of Anderson Transit System CATS) or the City of Anderson Web Site (www.cityofanderson.com) soon!
