Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) leaders are planning adjustments to new bus routes and are asking for the public's feedback.

CAT manager John Jones says the changes will go into effect as early as July and after Charlottesville City Council's approval. According to Jones, some of changes will likely include extending night service to Pantops and Martha Jefferson Hospital.

"When we do make the changes, we will make them all at once. We will make them meaningful and carefully so we don't leave anyone out. There were some neighborhoods left out before, there may be some stops that have to go back, we know that," said Jones.

There will be public meetings in February and March to collect more feedback. Jones and other CAT officers are riding buses to hear feedback from riders first hand.
