The Democrat-Gazette reported a while back, I believe, that CAT would be dropping bus shuttles to Alltel Arena events on account of federal rules meant to help private bus companies. Alltel and CAT are bidding farewell with a full recitation of their case — that their government-subsidized service could provide better service, with more handicapped equipped buses, for much less than the one private operator that was interested.

Net effect: no more shuttles. Lots of people rode them from remote parking places. I did.
