The CEO of CATS says all the improvements they promised will come, but you'll have to keep waiting for them.

New CEO Bob Mirabito said the agency isn't spending all the tax money that's coming in.

CATS has more than $3 million in the bank.

They're holding it because they want to buy new buses, and they're about to hire 70 new bus drivers as well, to cover all the new routes.

All that spending means wait times for riders will remain long until next spring.

CATS is also spending some of the tax money on raises for its employees. Their salaries had been frozen for the last four years, and were as low as any transit workers in the country.

If they have 3 mil in the bank they better put a NO WITHDRAWL notice on it to anyone involved with the CATS system orr it will disappear like the rest of the money has or go to pay bills of the board members personal problems like it has in the past. Beware not all the crooks are gone as long as any of the members are there that were part of the former problems, time to remove ALL doult and replace everyone in the CATS system and try to start with some honest people.....
