In observance of Juneteenth, the TCAT will run on a reduced service on Monday, June 20th. Though Juneteenth is on the 19th, most employers also observe the holiday on the 20th. Instead of operating on a typical weekday schedule on Monday, TCAT will operate on Sunday’s schedule, which ends earlier in the day and has fewer trips.
