If there is a detour along any CAT bus route, the bus will follow the detour. The operator will do his/her best to get back on the regular route and schedule as quickly as possible. If you usually get picked up in the middle of an ongoing construction project, we suggest that you wait at the beginning or end of the detour.

Make sure you have the most recent printing of the CAT map. Our newest version was revised as of August 2021.

Service interruptions and detours can also be found by calling 701.258.6817 and selecting option #5.

If a paratransit bus is being used on a fixed route, a color magnet specific to the route will be placed on the vehicle. You can also find this information on our Facebook page BismarckCATBus .
