Baton Rouge Country Superfest returns this weekend, along with thousands of commuters who will be clogging up the roads.
And this year the city-parish is reminding concert-goers to to get on the road early because parking will be chaotic and CATS shuttles won’t be available.
Unlike last year, the Capital Area Transit System is not offering rides from the area hotels. The bus agency offered rides from downtown and a few other hotels around Baton Rouge for $10 round trips. The service yielded 4,800 trips last Memorial Day weekend.
This year, the poor condition of the fleet has prevented CATS from being able to spare buses for the additional service.
“We can’t guarantee the fleet availability without potentially compromising regular service, which needs to be the first priority,” said Amie McNaylor, executive assistant to the CATS CEO.
