Chattanooga, Tenn. (UTC/The Loop)- UTC provides students, faculty, and staff a way to get to their destinations on campus quickly, safely, and free of charge.
The Mocs Express is a part of the city of Chattanooga’s CARTA bus system. CARTA is Chattanooga’s public transit provider. Anyone with a validated UTC ID card can ride the bus.
Three buses run throughout the day, starting at 7:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
“Generally, the busiest times people are on the bus are between the hours of noon and four o’clock,” said CARTA driver Rhonda Albert. “The UC and the corner store are where I pick up the most students.”
Benefits of Riding a CARTA Bus with a UTC ID/ Mocs Express:
- Unlimited free access to downtown Chattanooga, Hamilton Place, Northgate, and other CARTA routes
- Wheelchair accessible
- Busses run every 6 minutes
UTC freshmen Shauntra Spencer and Raquel Fuller said they both take the bus each day. ” I think it’s more convenient.” I have learned to know the schedule so I know when it will be coming and how long I’m going to have to wait,” Spencer said.
Weather plays a key factor to why some students take the bus said Fuller.” The bus is the most crowded when it’s cold or rainy.”
