Bus Stop Changes

Effective April 8, 2024, in preparation for the upcoming KAT Reimagined new bus network, we are making changes to many bus stops. Please check your bus stop sign for a red sticker. If there is a red sticker, it will indicate if your stop is moving or discontinued, and if so, where the next closest bus stop on that route is located.
