TCAT to Operate Full Service Tuesday

For Immediate Release: Oct. 30, 2012


All bus routes are operating as normal on Tuesday as Tompkins County has been thankfully spared the worst of Hurricane (or Super Storm) Sandy.

TCAT’s operations team will continue to monitor roadways throughout the day and will keep passengers  up to date if there are any changes via website,, local news media, Twitter: TCATrides and Facebook: EverythingTCAT. Passengers can also call (607) 277‑RIDE, but are asked for their patience due to a high volume of phone calls.

TCAT offers its appreciation to the county and city officials for all their hard work overnight in monitoring the storm and keeping the public abreast of its path and magnitude.
