CAT hopes to add automatic passenger counters to buses

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Charlottesville has a request for proposal for the purchase of Automatic Passenger Counters (APC) for Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) buses.

According to a spokesperson, APCs will provide accurate ridership data that could translate into more long-term, state funding for CAT.

APCs could be a helpful tool in assisting Charlottesville Area Transit in the evaluation of existing routes, as well as allow it to adjust its service model to help determine and deploy resources where they are needed.
