ITHACA, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Tompkins Consolidated Area Transport (TCAT) is giving residents a ride to the beautiful parks in their area.

Route 22 will travel to and from Ithaca Commons and Taughannock State Park, stopping at destinations that include Ithaca Children’s Garden and Cass Park.

The Northeast route will travel between Stewart Park and the Commons, stopping at Ithaca High School and the Fall Creek area.

Afternoon trips will stop at the recently opened Alex Haley Pool at GIAC and stop at Albany @ Court.
