Clemson Area Transit is the largest zero-fare bus line in the United States in terms of ridership. Known locally as CAT or the "CAT Bus", it is the most frequently used transit system in South Carolina. Areas with bus service include Clemson University, the City of Clemson, the County of Anderson, City of Seneca and the Towns of Central and Pendleton. The fare-free system is made possible by federal grants and matching funds from the city and University. CAT now boasts the most modern fleet of buses east of the Mississippi River.

Utilizing multiple routes and lines, CAT Buses help shuttle students from satellite parking to the heart of campus, transport citizens and students from campus or downtown to surrounding neighborhoods and apartment complexes, and move travelers from the Clemson area to surrounding communities.

The service is jointly operated by the City of Clemson and Clemson University.

CAT Bus Lines

  • Anderson 4U
  • Pendleton Route
  • Red Route - Central to Clemson
  • Seneca Express
  • Seneca Business Loop

CAT buses are characterized by purple and orange buses with purple-dimmed lights at night. They are operated by students and local citizens, day or night. Buses have "Bike & Ride" bike racks. The CAT Bus was started and founded by Clemson's Alpha Phi Omega fraternity.
