In April, it was brought to our attention that Knoxville Area Transit (KAT) was in discussions with the City of Knoxville to expand trolley service to Blount Avenue, thereby finally linking South Knoxville to Downtown. May 22, 2019, City Council approved the Mayor’s Budget that includes $300,000 for the KAT Pilot Program that will bring the Trolley across the Gay Street Bridge, travel in front of One Riverwalk and proceed back to Main Street across the Henley Street Bridge. The trolley will take us to the main transfer station in front of the City-County Building where we can connect to any other area of downtown or UT. Details on when service will begin is still being worked out and stay tuned for further information.
