CAT bus

— Raleigh's CAT buses could get a new name and look by the end of the year.

City Council on Tuesday agreed to move forward with renaming Capital Area Transit as Go Raleigh.

It's part of a regional rebranding effort to reduce confusion among bus riders.While buses around the Triangle belong to separate operating systems, they share many of the same resources.

Durham and the Triangle Transit Authority will rename their buses Go Transit and Go Durham.

Cary and Chapel Hill still have to vote on renaming their systems.
