Passengers should ask the vehicle operator for an Information Card listing the phone number for Knox County CAC Transit. Please keep this card in order to call us when you are ready for a return trip. Knox County CAC Transit will make every effort to arrive within one hour after you call or have pre-scheduled your return trip. Every effort will be made to notify the passenger if the vehicle operator is running late due to any uncontrollable circumstances. In order to insure timeliness of service, the vehicle operators can wait only five minutes at the pick-up and drop-off locations. Cancellations should be made at least two hours before the scheduled pick-up or return time.


The Knox County CAC Transit vehicle operators are required to assist every passenger on and off the vehicle and to provide door-to-door assistance as needed.
