They say it’s a dry heat but Yuma's summer sun is brutal if you’re not prepared. That’s why YCAT is encouraging riders to stay cool this summer as they plan their transit trips. Here are some cool tips for riders as they walk to bus stops: 1. Always carry water. Containers with spill-proof lids are allowed on buses. 2. Plan your trip. Use YCAT's catTRAX for real-time schedule info to reduce wait times. 3. Create your own shade by using a small umbrella or by wearing a hat. 4. Always wear sunscreen. 5. If temperatures exceed 115 degrees, YCAT will provide free water to all passengers on board buses.
