N. Carolina's CAT taps Veolia for fixed-route service

Posted on November 30, 2011

Veolia Transportation announced the company will continue to operate the Capital Area Transit (CAT) fixed-route bus service in Raleigh, N.C., after being awarded a management contract renewal for three years, with two, one-year options.

"This is an exciting time for us as we move toward the next three years. We are proud to continue our long-standing relationship with CAT and the Raleigh community," said Veolia GM Scott McClellan, who added that the company will continue to bring innovations to the CAT service that will provide the highest levels of safety and service.

In May 2011 the 190 CAT employees and 89 vehicles moved to a new $30 million transit facility that accommodates operations and maintenance. The new facility was built by the city and replaced the old facility built in the late 1970's.

Designed with future expansion in mind, the new facility will be able to accommodate up to 200 vehicles and is expected to earn a LEEDS Platinum certification.
