Game Day Shuttles: CATA has your ride to Penn State football games this fall
CATA will provide shuttle service to the home games with two distinct routes — one serving downtown State College and the other serving South Atherton Street hotels and businesses.
Shuttles begin operation three hours before kick-off and run continuously until one hour after each game is over. (For games that begin at 5 pm or later, shuttle service will begin five hours before kick-off.) Shuttles operate both to and from the stadium approximately every 10 minutes before the game, every 20 minutes during the game, and every 10 minutes one-way leaving the stadium following the game.
Fare is $2 per one-way trip (exact fare only). Persons 65 and over who present a Senior Transit Identification Card (available free of charge at CATA's Customer Service Center with a valid ID) and children under 40 inches tall ride free. Those presenting a valid U.S. Medicare Card or a CATA Reduced Fare Identification Card may ride for half the fare ($1).
For more information, please refer to the CATA Game Day Shuttles schedule brochures available on CATA buses, visit the CATA website, or call (814) 238-CATA (2282). www.catabus.com
