Starting out as a free door-to-door transit system in 1979, dignity, respect, customer service and the unmet need for accessible transportation were the principles guiding the formation of the Casper Area Transportation Coalition.
Our mission has always been:
To provide safe, low cost transportation service to members of the general public including the elderly, disabled and transportation disadvantaged.
Today, like the past, The Bus and CATC strive to meet critical transportation needs while emphasizing customer service. But unlike the past, transportation services now extend beyond those needing para transit busing and are available to everyone needing a safe, accessible, dependable, environmentally friendly way to travel throughout the greater Casper area.
The Casper Area Transportation Coalition is a public, non-profit business managed by a Board of Directors. Board members are elected at the annual meeting. One third of the directors are elected each year. They choose a president, a vice president, and a secretary/treasurer.
The Board of Directors meet the fourth Monday of every month at 3:30 pm at the Senior Center located at 1831 East 4th Street, Casper, Wyoming.
Legal holidays are the only exception when the Senior Center is closed. When this occurs, contact the Casper Area Transportation Coalition office for meeting details.
The Casper Area Transportation Coalition day to day operations are run by the director, an executive assistance, and a driver supervisor.
All buses are owned by the respective cities they serve. They are maintained and managed by the Casper Area Transportation Coalition.
Recognizing the essential transportation needs of school age children, the elderly, the disabled, the disadvantaged, and the increasing negative environmental impacts transportation causes, the cities of Casper, Mills, Evansville, Bar Nunn, and Natrona County have partnered together to subsidize public transportation.
Additional funding is provided by the Wyoming Department of Transportation and Federal grant money is utilized.
