KATS offering free rides from new transit facility starting June 10


KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL)- The Kingsport Area Transit Service will be operating out of its brand new facility downtown starting Monday, June 10.

The new building on East Main Street is a project city leaders have been working on for years.

KATS Transit Coordinator, Chris Campbell, told News Channel 11 back in 2017 that the new facility will help with the growing popularity of public transportation.

Wednesday morning city officials said all six routes have been improved and that route 6 will now go to Colonial Heights to serve additional people in that area.

Route 6 will stop at the Food City on Moreland Drive. 

Officials will hold a ribbon cutting for the new facility Friday, June 14. 

Free rides are being offered from June 10-June 28.
