Because of dangerously cold temperatures on Thursday, Jan. 31, TCAT general manager Scot Vanderpool announced that TCAT will offer free rides on all of its routes for the day.

“TCAT is doing its part to make sure folks who happen to be out and about have an option to escape the elements by boarding a warm bus,” Vanderpool said. “If you are out and about, please keep TCAT in mind as an option to protect yourself from these dangerous temperatures.” 

Vanderpool encourages passengers to still dress warmly and be at their bus stop on time.
