Buses in Knoxville start reduced service on November 9 due to Covid-19

Effective Monday, November 9, 2020, Knoxville Area Transit will be reducing weekday service on some
routes as a result of a workforce shortage. This shortage is NOT due to increased COVID-19 cases
amongst employees, but rather, it is due to employees following proper CDC guidelines of quarantining
when required or staying home when feeling sick. With every effort to maintain as much service as
possible, KAT will be making the changes listed below to KAT routes. Additional buses will be dispatched
as needed and available during this time. The routes with service reductions are listed below, and this
change will likely be in effect through mid-January.
Weekday service reductions:
Route 11 – Kingston Pike – service every 30 minutes
Route 17 – Sutherland – service once an hour
Route 20 – Central – service once an hour
Route 22 – Broadway – service every 30 minutes
Route 31 – Magnolia – service every 30 minutes
Route 32 – Dandridge – service once an hour
Route 34 – Burlington – service once an hour
Route 40 – South Knoxville – service once an hour
Route 45 – Vestal – service once an hour
Orange Line Trolley – ends at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings
Blue Line Trolley – ends at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings
Green Line Trolley – service every 20 minutes, ends at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings
All other weekday routes will maintain their current schedules, and weekend service will remain the
same, with the exception of evening trolley services described above. Detailed information on schedule
changes can be found at katbus.com or by calling 865-637-3000.
Maintaining Safety Precautions
 In an effort to maintain proper social distancing, KAT routes will still operate fare-free and
passengers are encouraged to enter through the back doors.
 Seating on buses is limited to half of regular capacity, and additional buses are dispatched as
available when buses reach that capacity.
 Properly worn face coverings are required on all KAT buses, as well as at Knoxville Station, and
face masks and hand sanitizer dispensers are available on all buses and at Knoxville Station.
 Buses are cleaned and disinfected on a daily basis.
The public is strongly encouraged to limit transit use to essential trips only to ensure that Knoxville’s
essential workforce is able to travel via transit.
