CKCATS’ trip volume continues to climb. The CKCATS team continues to work hard to keep up with the abundance of trips daily. The staff works very hard to make sure that we are able to complete trips in all counties.

I attended the Community Service Meeting in Marion County on March 16th. The Community Service Board members were present, and I spoke with them to inform them of the services that we provide. The Board Members were very attentive and were excited to share our brochures with the individuals that they serve who may need our services.

On March 25th, CKCATS attended the Community Fair in Marion County. We were asked to attend the fair along with other businesses to inform the community of our services. The Community Fair was held at the public library.

CKCATS is gearing up for the Senior Celebration that will be held on May 25th at the Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown. CKCATS will be providing transportation from the Senior Centers to Pritchard Community Center for all seniors who pre-register for the ride. CKCATS will also have a booth at the Senior Celebration and will be talking with seniors to make them aware of the services that we provide and will be able to sign seniors up for III-B Senior trips on the spot. If you or anyone you know that is a senior, would like to sign up for transportation to the Senior Celebration, please contact CKCATS at 270-692-9313 or 1-800-242-8225.

We are still waiting for the 12×2 vehicles that became available a few months ago. We hope to get the vehicles soon. We applied for 2 SUVs for Intercity on the FY24 grant application. These SUVs are available so they should arrive within a few weeks.

I have hired a new Grant and Compliance Manager. Erica Mitchell has several years of experience in transportation and is a previous employee of CKCATS. Ms. Mitchell is knowledgeable in the operation of CKCATS and is familiar with the compliance aspect, making her a great choice for the position.

Several staff members of the CKCATS team will be attending the Community Action Kentucky (CAK) Conference in Lexington from June 13-15. There will be a Transportation Track on June 15th. As always, these conferences are a great way to learn valuable information and to network.  

If you or anyone you know would like to join the staff at CKCATS please go to to apply. CKCATS is hiring full-time and part-time drivers in Marion, Larue, Hardin, Nelson, Breckinridge and Grayson counties.
