Capital Area Transit (CAT) is currently working on a new branding scheme which will include updated brochures, information, and even a bus paint job. CAT painted a single bus in order to get a real-world look at the design. If approved, the whole fleet may one day sport this red and white design. What do you think?
No, the Hurricanes aren’t in the Stanley Cup. But when they do go back, if you would like to see more CAT buses decked out in red and white, you need to comment on the Short Range Transit Plan being carried out by the City of Raleigh and a few other organizations. Comments about your current use and how you feel about investing in more buses would be helpful too. You can find a survey on the city’s website here. From the site:
The purpose of the plan is to identify ways to increase mobility in the Capital Area. The plan will be based on input Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, the City of Raleigh, the Town of Cary, Wake County, the North Carolina State Wolfline and other Wake County municipalities, agencies, businesses, community leaders, residents and other interested parties. The Bus Transit Development Plan will look at the transit needs for all of Wake County and will be designed to integrate with regional transit routes.
