Severe Snow Routes
If weather conditions become severe, KAT may begin running on Severe Snow Routes. When this happens, service will ONLY be provided on the major corridors of Knoxville. This includes: Route 11: Kingston Pike (to Walker Springs), Route 41: Chapman Highway (to Walmart), Route 31: Magnolia Avenue (to Burns), Route 22: Broadway (to Essary), and Route 12: Western Avenue (to I-640 Plaza).
During Severe Snow Routes, all passengers ride free, but please note: KAT can return to Snow Routes before a passenger’s return trip and the passenger will be required to pay regular fare for that portion of the trip.
