Cat-Tran, the Catamount On-Campus Transportation System, is a student-supported service offered through Transportation Services at Western Carolina University.
Cat-Tran runs weekdays and weekends during fall and spring, offering transportation from residence halls and commuter lots to the center of campus.
With Cat-Tran, you're never more than a few minutes away from the center of campus. See you on the bus!
Please Note: Cat-Tran shuttle times and availability can be affected by adverse weather.
Cat-Tran is now using NextBus, an APP that provides transit information through the internet to mobile devices. You can also text to receive arrival information and subscribe to receive messages pertinent to your route.
