Greene CatsThe Greene County Transit Board’s mission is to provide safe, reliable, convenient, accessible, practical and cost-effective public transit service for all of Greene County’s population, with special attention to the needs of the County’s transportation disadvantaged population, and with close coordination with the County’s social services agencies, businesses and local decision-makers.

Greene CATS has provided public transit service since January 8, 2001.The service began operations as a rural public transit service in 2001 and continued as a rural system through the end of 2003. At the beginning of 2004, Greene CATS began operations as an urban public transit service. The service operates from 6AM to 9PM, seven days a week. Service is demand-responsive and flex-service. The demand responsive service is curb-to-curb and changes daily, depending on demand. The flex-service is travels a constant route (with flag stops), but does deviate up to ¾ of a mile. Greene County is the primary service area for its demand responsive public transit service. Service is also available to and from Montgomery and surrounding counties. The demand responsive fare is $1.50 per one-way passenger trip within Greene County and $6 outside of Greene County. The flex-service fare is very reasonable per on-way passenger trip. Greene CATS operates approximately 914,000 annual vehicle-miles and 45,000 annual vehicle-hours. The fleet consists of 36 vehicles (35 wheelchair accessible light transit vehicles and one sedan). All of the light transit vehicles are owned by Greene CATS.

Most riders are transportation-disadvantaged (elderly, disabled, low-income, mental health, low auto ownership). Most trip purposes are work and medical. Annual ridership (one-way passenger-trips) is approximately 155,000. Demand is high, but service is still limited, due to funding. There are approximately 400 trip denials per month.
Several social services agencies and other groups contract for service and pay fully allocated costs. The primary purchasers of service are the Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities (DD) and the Greene County Department of Job and Family Services (JFS).
