Charlottesville Area Transit will officially drop its old designation, the Charlottesville Transit Service, on Aug. 21, the same day it will update some bus routes.

The service’s new logo will feature mountains and dogwood flowers. The logo also includes a lot of green, which, according to transit officials, reflects mass transit’s sustainable nature.

“We’re excited to launch the new branding and identity for CAT, and we are always looking for ways to increase efficiency of service, as well as riders’ access to transit,” Bill Watterson, manager for CAT, said in a news release. “By improving routes, providing real-time passenger information and planning for hybrid bus service in 2011, Charlottesville Area Transit is working hard to make a greener future for Charlottesville.”

After the route changes, some stops on Jefferson Park Avenue and Market Street won’t be served by certain routes that currently stop there. Notices have been posted at the affected stops.

Specific route changes:

2B: New service at the Region Ten location on Old Lynchburg Road; slightly different route northward to the downtown.

4: No more service on Jefferson Park Avenue between Lee Street and Cleveland Avenue (because of construction). New path runs along Cherry Avenue between Shamrock Road and Rock Creek Road.

6: New service to Raymond Road and Brookwood Lane.

7, 8: New location for the stop at Kroger on U.S. 29; new path through Kroger parking lot as buses head to Kmart.
