New Head of CAT Encourages Ridership

February 26, 2013

The new leader of Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) wants to see you on a bus.

John Jones started the job on Monday, and says he wants to make the city buses appealing to everyone.

Jones told CBS19 that he wants commuters to change their habits.

"That people choose to get out of their cars, choose to get around the city on CAT buses, and use it every day or as many days of the week as they can to eliminate as much congestion in the city as we can."

The city is conducting a study on ways to improve public transit.
