CAT to hold public meeting about canceled route

CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) – Capital Area Transit is scheduled to hold a public meeting about the cancellation of the Carlisle Circulator.

Cumberland County officials announced in January the route would be canceled because of low ridership.

The route was a three-year pilot program that made stops through the borough, Dickinson College, shopping plazas and warehouses on Allen Road.

CAT in a news release said ridership peaked at 3.58 passengers an hour per bus. Its goal was to have 8.45 riders.

The circulator will stop running on April 28.

A public meeting about its cancellation will be held Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Carlisle Borough Hall.
