CATS to remove downtown hub and stop Red Stick Trolley service

Over the weekend, the Capital Area Transit System will make a big change to its services: The organization will remove its downtown hub and stop its Red Stick Trolley service, according to a news release.

“For efficiency’s sake, we decided to combine the removal of Route 15 with the removal of the Downtown Hub, following some concerns about CATS buses being located near the Old State Capitol,” said CATS CEO Bill Deville in the release. “While this will alter some downtown routes in a minor way, it will not change the frequency of most service. In fact, on one route, we expect to see an improvement in the frequency of service.”

A temporary hub is set up near the Old State Capitol and North Boulevard, and after it’s gone, some routes will pass through the CATS Terminal on Florida Boulevard and North 22nd Street.
