In the 1960s the City and Cornell established independent bus systems which expanded throughout the next two decades. Service was first extended to serve Ithaca’s suburbs in the 1970s, and to rural towns beginning in 1982. In 1974, a transit service in Northeast Ithaca (Lansing, Cayuga Heights and the Town of Ithaca) was started by apartment owners contracting with Swarthout Coaches to operated limited service for Cornell students, and as the public demand for service increased, the apartment owners sought assistance from local governments and Cornell University, which became Northeast Transit in 1978. Tompkins County became involved in supporting suburban routes and in developing rural transit service. The County formed TOMTRAN to extend fixed-route bus service to Dryden, Caroline and Newark Valley[4] in 1982, Groton (1983), Newfield and Ulysses (1985), and Lansing and Danby (1991). In 1999, TCAT initiated bus service to Enfield, the last unserved town in the County. In 1992, the City, Cornell and County built a $5 million transit facility to base transit operations and fleet maintenance including GADABOUT.[5] In 1996, the New York State Legislature adopted a state law that authorized TCAT to be created as a joint partnership, governmental entity,[6] and on April 1, 1998, the City of Ithaca, Cornell University and Tompkins County established TCAT as a joint venture (public entity) to operate public transit service in Tompkins County, service began in 1999, establishing a unified route and fare system.[7] TCAT re-organized itself as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, TCAT. Inc. in 2005 with representatives of City of Ithaca, Cornell University, and Tompkins County serving on its Board of Directors. In 1976, a consortium of municipalities and human service agencies formed GADABOUT Transportation Services to address travel needs of seniors and people with disabilities and today operates the Federally mandated paratransit service for Tompkins County. Although GADABOUT did not join TCAT in 1998, the two companies are still closely related, with GADABOUT leasing space and maintenance services from TCAT. Routes Thirty-six bus routes comprise the TCAT system.[8] Routes are identified by number and are usually indicated on a marquee at the front of the bus, and sometimes on the side as well. TCAT's main hub is Green Street, off of the Commons, a two-block pedestrian mall in downtown Ithaca. Most non South Hill routes run through the Cornell University campus; East Avenue near Statler Hall is considered a secondary hub.[9] Downtown and West Hill Route 14 West Hill - Commons Route 15 Southside Shopper Route 17 Commons - TCAT Route 68 Southwest Shopping South Hill Route 11 Ithaca College - Commons Route 65 Danby - Commons East Hill, Collegetown and Cornell University Campus Route 10 Cornell - Commons Shuttle Route 13 Commons - Fall Creek - Mall Route 30 Commons - Shops at Ithaca Mall Route 31 Commons - Convenient Care Route 32 Commons - Airport Route 36 South Lansing - Commons Route 37 North Lansing - Commons Route 51 Commons - Cornell - Eastern Heights Route 52 Newark Valley - Commons Route 53 Ellis Hollow - Brooktondale Route 54 Cornell - Turkey Hill Route 70 Commons - Cornell - Mall Weekend Service Route 72 Commons - Cornell - Airport Weekend Service Route 74 Groton - Mall Weekend Service Route 75 TC3 - Cornell - Mall Weekend Service Route 77 Mall - Warren Road Weekend Service Routes 81-93 are Cornell University intercampus services Rural Routes Route 20 Commons - Enfield - Schuyler County Route 21 Trumansburg - Commons Route 40 Freeville - Groton - McLean Route 41 Cornell - Freeville - TC3 Route 43 Cornell - Varna - TC3 Route 44 Groton - Shops at Ithaca Mall Route 45 Dryden - Shops at Ithaca Mall Route 67 Newfield - Commons Fleet TCAT operates a mix of 51 35 ft and 40 ft transit buses and two small 14-passenger buses.
