ECAT Launches Classroom On Wheels, How To Ride The Bus Programs

September 30, 2013

Escambia County Area Transit (ECAT) began its Classroom on Wheels program Tuesday, providing presentations and educational tours of the ECAT facility to all public, private and homeschooled students in Escambia County.

Throughout the tour, students will learn about ECAT services, receive a complimentary souvenir and have an opportunity to ride an ECAT bus or trolley.

In addition to Classroom on Wheels, ECAT offers a “How to Ride ECAT” information session that will teach Escambia County residents where to access the bus and what locations ECAT travels.

    We need to remember the ones that forced this 4 cent per gallon boondoggle on us.

    There isn’t much support for ECAT in the city and no one north of I-10 ( who can not benefit from this “service” ) likes it.

    I for one will try not to buy gas in Escambia if I can at all help it.

    Well it seems like ECAT is about to benefit from that additional 4 cent per gallon gas tax to waste it on something that can be done elsewhere. How to ride a bus 101: you pay your fare (which is probably less than the price of a gallon of gas). get on sit down and shut up. Wait till you get close to your stop signal the driver. When the bus stop stand up and walk to the nearest exit. How hard is that. Oh by the way here is a plastic ECAT bus and a compliment 2014 magnetic calendar all made right here in Pensacola by a business owner who is a friend of a county commissioner. Have a nice day. I guess some people think tax payers and automobile owners are dumb to what goes on around this place.
