CATS donates bus to CPCC mechanic students

Posted on September 14, 2009

[IMAGE]Cats.jpg[/IMAGE]Charlotte Area Transit System's (CATS) Interim CEO John Muth presented Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) President Dr. Tony Zeiss and students with a donated bus.  

"We are excited to be able to give this bus to CPCC so future mechanics can use it for learning and training," said Muth. "CATS is committed to ensuring that our fleet is properly maintained and we look forward to having technicians from CPCC as part of the CATS team in the future."

CATS recently retired the 1997 40-foot Gillig bus, and Charlotte City Council approved the donation to CPCC. 

"This bus is a great addition to our Transportation System Technology program which has seen a great influx of students," said Dr. Zeiss. "This partnership with CATS allows faculty to expand their teaching and prepare students for even more opportunities upon graduation."

CPCC is the largest community college in North Carolina, offering close to 300 degree and certification programs, customized corporate training, market-focused continuing education and special interest classes. In 2002, the National Alliance of Business named CPCC the Community College of the Year for its response to the workforce and technology needs of local employers and job seekers through innovative educational and training strategies.
