Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA) tested an Xcelsior XE40 zero-emissions battery-electric bus — on loan from bus manufacturer New Flyer — for five days from March 13 through March 17. CATA will consider whether to purchase a bus like it in the future. CATA drivers had the opportunity to put the bus into service while it was here.

CATA continues to offer the youth pass discount it expanded last summer — now available year 'round to all riders under age 18 and taller than 40 inches (children under 40 inches ride free).  

CRPR thanks residents for your continued support of Centre Region parks and for recognizing the importance of staying active in your community.
