People at the Downtown bus station Tuesday evening got more than a bus ride. They could see and shape future bus ride routes.

The city of Charlottesville is studying Charlottesville Area Transit's or CAT's, bus routes.

The Transit Service Study will consider ways to improve transit services. Initial proposals include straighter, more direct paths to shorten trips and routes sticking more to main streets that everyone is familiar with.

The public could see these initial concepts and give their feedback to the study team.

"We talked, and she basically showed me the different routes and how, I guess, the different routes were going to be combined as different options." said Tilwana Terrell, a CAT rider.

"We're trying to get feedback from people who ride our transit system about how to make it better," said Lance Stewart, Charlottesville Transit Manager. "What better place to do it at than the place that nine out of our ten routes come everyday?"

If you weren't downtown at the bus station Tuesday, you can still give your feedback online at the CAT website.
