CATS bus system improving, but still yet to deliver on tax promises a year past self-imposed deadline _lowres

Advocate file photo by TRAVIS SPRADLING -- Riders walk to their buses just after dawn at the Capital Area Transit System (CATS) terminal on Florida Boulevard.

The Capital Area Transit System is now allowing people to buy bus passes online, at its website, in an effort to improve customer service and increase ridership.

“We are pleased to have this feature active on the website,” said CATS CEO Bob Mirabito. “We know that our customers will enjoy the convenience of purchasing our passes from the comfort of their homes. We are constantly striving to be as customer-friendly as possible, and this is one more way we can achieve that.”

Multi-ride passes have previously had to be purchased from designated brick and mortar sites, primarily the CATS terminal on Florida boulevard.

The passes for purchase are: all day, seven day, 15 day, 31 day and Touchdown Express for LSU’s remaining home games.


CATS struggles to attract ‘Riders of Choice’ and announces two route cuts.
