The Mayor's On Board KAT Trolley and Bus Ride Sept. 19

Posted: 09/16/2014
September 16, 2014 - On Friday, Sept. 19 starting at 10:40 a.m. Mayor Madeline Rogero, Deputy to the Mayor Bill Lyons, Director of Transit Dawn Distler and other City officials will ride KAT vehicles to lunch, then to a KPD press conference, to illustrate the convenience and affordability of public transit.

Mayor Rogero and her staff will catch the Downtown Loop Trolley in front of the City County Building and will ride to KAT's John J. Duncan Jr. Knoxville Station Transit Center. From there, they will depart from Platform H aboard the 11 a.m. Route 22 - Broadway bus to the stop at Broadway and Hotel Avenue, where they'll get off the bus and lunch at Litton's Market and Restaurant, 2803 Essary Road.

The Mayor and staff will then board the Route 90 - Crosstown bus at about 1:07 p.m. at the nearby bus stop at Essary and Stanton Road, riding to the Northgate Terrace bus stop.

That's near the Knoxville Police Department's East District Office, 4450 Walker Blvd., where Mayor Rogero will join Police Chief David Rausch for a press conference honoring KPD's Patrol Unit of the Month.

"KAT carries more than 3.6 million passengers each year," Mayor Rogero said. "Public transit is a convenient, reliable and environmentally-friendly option for getting around town, running errands or for conducting business."
