CAT announces average 30-minute system wide bus delay

Written by witf | May 9, 2013 1:41 PM

Given traffic conditions in the greater Harrisburg area at this time, and the announcement of a two-hour early release of all nonessential state employees, Capital Area Transit will run all normal bus routes as per normal weekday schedules; however, CAT riders are advised to expect a 30-minute delay at all stops.

CAT will provide transit updates throughout the evening via the CAT website,, as well as periodic CAT Prime Rider text and email messages. CAT regrets any inconvenience this may cause transit customers.

Celebrating its 40th Anniversary, CAT was incorporated in 1973 when Cumberland County and Dauphin County Commissioners and the City of Harrisburg organized Capital Area Transit to provide mass transit fixed-route and Paratransit shared-ride services, which today conveniently and safely transports about 3 million riders a year in the capital region.
