Riding to Lunch on Cumberland -- for Free! 
Today is the first day of Knoxville Area Transit's Free Fare service on Cumberland Avenue -- if you catch a KAT bus on Cumberland, anywhere from downtown to the western end of Cumberland, your ride is free! The service will continue for the duration of construction on the Cumberland Avenue Corridor Project, to make it easier to get to and from destinations on Cumberland while reducing vehicle traffic.

To promote the service and support Cumberland Avenue businesses, a group of City of Knoxville staff members joined Chief Operating Officer and Deputy to the Mayor Christi Branscom for a ride out to Sunspot for lunch. The rides were quick and convenient, and the food was delicious!
