Until further notice, CAT buses, Dial-A-Ride and Senior Rider services will end at 6:00 pm due to a severe lack of ridership.


***As covid-19 (corona virus) is affecting North Dakota but not yet in Grand Forks County, CAT drivers are doing all they can to protect riders and management is doing what it can to protect our drivers. CAT will continue to provide service and transportation. If you do not need to go anywhere, please stay home.

CAT is discouraging riders who may feel ill or travel is unnecessary to stay at home.

We monitor our drivers for any issues that may arise. All drivers currently working are healthy.
Drivers on medical leave do not have respiratory sicknesses. The safety and well-being of our drivers is our top priority.

The vehicles are cleaned daily and disinfected, including the driver’s area. The drivers are provided hand-sanitizer and Clorox bleach wipes. We are well stocked up and are keeping our buses clean. CAT has moved to a stronger hospital grade product for increased safety. Every evening, CAT buses are cleaned and disinfected thoroughly.***
