Knoxville Area Transit, commonly referred to as KAT, is the operator of public transportation in Knox County, Tennessee. Twenty three regular routes are operated, plus two express routes that operate on weekdays, which feature park & ride opportunities for I-40 commuters. Knoxville Trolley Lines is a free shuttle service which provides service to the university and the downtown area. KAT also operates the transit service for the University of Tennessee, which is known as The T. The T service consists of five routes that are contingent upon the University of Tennessee class schedule and that are designed to transport students around campus or between the main campus and the Agricultural Campus; several additional routes transport students to campus from off-campus housing.
