CARTA is pleased to announce enhancements to its shuttle and fixed route services effective May 9th. CARTA will extend its North Shore Shuttle to the North Chattanooga area that will replace the #2 North Chattanooga bus route. This will provide the North Shore and North Chattanooga communities with service six days a week and as it will be an extension of the shuttle system, the service will be FREE.
CARTA will extend its Downtown Shuttle to Broad Street to serve the Historic St. Elmo community and the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway. This new shuttle route will replace the #15 St. Elmo bus route and will provide the St. Elmo community with service seven days a week and will also be FREE.
CARTA will consolidate three bus routes, #5 North Brainerd, #8 Eastdale and #19 Cromwell Road into one dial-a-ride route and will be renamed as Route #5 North Brainerd/Cromwell Road. This expanded dial-a-ride route will serve these three communities and will also serve the Chattanooga Veterans Administration Clinic on Shallowford Road. The buses will leave the Walmart on Greenway View Drive every 30 minutes with service six days a week.
