Collier Area Transit (CAT) will hold a public information meeting about a new route that will link Collier and Lee counties. The route is called LinC, which stands for Lee in Collier.
The meeting will be held in an open house format from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16, at the Collier County Museum, 3331 U.S. 41 E. There will not be a formal presentation, rather CAT is providing the opportunity for the public to review displays of the new transit route along with time tables. Members of the public will also have the opportunity to speak with staff from both CAT and LeeTran.
The new LinC route will begin Oct. 6 and operate seven days a week with a LeeTran bus leaving every 90 minutes from the Superstop on Immokalee Road at the Creekside Business Park, which is located just east of U.S. 41. This stop is on the CAT Red Route 1B/1C. The fare for the new route is $1.25.
Florida Department of Transportation and federal Transit Administration grant funds are helping to fund the new route.
Those with a disability who need accommodations to participate in the meeting should contact the Collier County Facilities Management Department at (239) 252-8380 prior to the meeting. Assisted listening devices for the hearing impaired are available in the County Commissioners’ Office.
