"We Will Come to You"
Services County Wide...To The Entire Community
Caswell County Area Transportation System (CATS) was established on September 11, 2000 to consolidate transportation services from various local organizations and county departments. CATS is more cost effective and fuel efficient than having various county departments managing their own transportation services. CATS’ goal is to provide safe, clean and affordable transportation to the citizens of Caswell County. Transportation is provided at reasonable rates as long as state funds are available. CATS provides local and out of county transportation to the citizens of Caswell County. We provide transportation to anyone in Caswell County. CATS is a drug and alcohol-free workplace. If you are interested in finding out more information or scheduling a ride please contact us at 336-694-1424 or TDD/TTY users dial 1-800-735-2962. Come join our community transportation system! We provide demand response services.
