New CAT Busses Come to Bismarck

Posted: Updated:
Businesses along the rivers aren't the only things jam packed recently, Capital Area Transit announced last week that rider ship numbers are way up. 


The April and May tallies broke the previous CAT bus record of more than 12,700 riders, which was set back in May of 2013. Just a year later that number has jumped to more than 14,000 riders in the month of May. This sharp increase in riders prompted Bis-Man Transit to purchase two new larger busses, which cost nearly $400,000 each. 

"We've been generally working with 30-foot busses but the route between Bismarck and Mandan is one of our busiest routes," says Transit Director, Robin Werre. "And many times we're full and the same thing with the route that runs between Kirkwood Mall and Gateway Mall, many times is full."

Werre says the busses take about two years to build.
