Clemson Area Transit (CAT)

5 posts in this topic


The 3 new Seneca routes on the CAT system have made it halfway to their 1 year goals in just 3 months. Ridership was 7,023 trips in January, which is up from 5,762 in November. The actual number of individual trips so far is 22,000. That means that their annual trip goal is probably somewhere around 40,000. All of this speaks highly for free transit in small towns. I have read elsewhere that many people gave obtained gainful employment because of the CAT system in Seneca.

I'm not sure of the specifics there, but my guess is that CAT is wary about extending its services beyond its primary purpose of serving the Clemson campus. ICAR will probably need to be a destination at some point.

The Maveric Route is doing well as far as I know. I don't have any numbers for it though,.

Clemson has serious plans to provide hydrogen-fueled buses to transport people to and from ICAR. They plan a hydrogen station on the Greenville campus.
