People around Charlottesville could let the city know what they thought of proposed changes to local bus routes.

Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) held a meeting to get community input on suggested changes in the Northwest area .... that's from the Hydraulic Road and Barracks Road areas out to Wal-Mart and Fashion Square.

CAT is working to make their buses run more efficiently and reliably, which they heard about Monday night.

"We did hear about our reliability. We're aware we have some reliability issues and we're going to work on those reliability issues and improve them. So that when people look at their watch, and that schedule says there's gonna be a bus, they're going to see a bus, or they'll know why," said John Jones, CAT Transit Manager.

If you would like to make your opinions on the bus routes heard, CAT has two more public comments meetings you may attend, an Eastern area meeting on July 15 and a Southwest area meeting on July 29. Visit the CAT website for the meeting times and places
