Reporting to a Board of Directors, a chief executive officer manages CAT’s day-to-day operations. CAT staff uses industry “best practices” to handle the details of operations, safety issues, vehicle maintenance, customer care, route design and scheduling, human resources, administration, ridership growth, capital planning, and grant administration. The Board of Directors controls policy issues such as fare structure and service levels.
As one of those industry best practices, CAT follows board-approved Transit Service Guidelines for making decisions about where, when, and how often we serve the various areas of our county.
