Advocates for mass transit are keeping a running tally of complaints about the new local bus routes. Albemarle resident Nancy Carpenter (pictured) has compiled some comments by riders of Charlottesville Area Transit. They include the recent end of Saturday service on Route 1, and changes in bus stops that have created longer walking distances. CAT made significant changes to many bus routes on January 4th. The riders’ comments have been brought to City Council. Councilor Kathy Galvin has asked City Manager Maurice Jones to ask for regular reports on reaction to the new routes from CAT administrators.
