All downtown routes drop at Knoxville Station - the city's new transit center, which is a 5-minute walk to The Tennessee or Bijou Theaters, or an 8-10 minute walk to Market Square. Security and supervisory personnel are available at Knoxville Station to assist passengers with questions.

Information on routes, schedules, and fares can be found at www.katbus.com or KAT Transit Agents are available to assist with trip planning at 865-637-3000.
