    - Join us for an evening of micro brews and music from award-winning songwriter Amy Kucharik on her #fuelforboots tour in historic Downtown Kingsport.

    About Amy Kucharik (/kuh-CHAR-ick/)
    Drawing from blues and Dixieland traditions and with a street-smart stagecraft honed in the subways of Boston, Amy’s "modern vintage" grooves have earned her comparisons to Lake Street Dive, Maria Muldaur and the Asylum Street Spankers. The 2015 Kerrville New Folk winning songwriter explores all dimensions of her ukulele, both exploiting and defying its reputation as a novelty instrument. Amy performs as a one-woman-band with foot percussion and mouth trumpet, while her Vaudevillian charm and infectious, danceable swing transport her audience to a place both timeless and familiar, but nevertheless innovative. Her catchy, edgy, sometimes haunting lyrics recount tales of reluctant love, heartbreak, revenge, and grit. Texas Outside said Amy “…stole the show with the light, upbeat sounds of her instrument and voice against the dark humor of her lyrics.” Amy has been touring for the last couple of years, sharing stages with the likes of Rod Picott, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, and 2014 Boston Music Awards Folk Artist of the Year Dan Blakeslee.

  • - Discounts for passengers during entire month of June.

    Kingsport, TN – KATS will be hosting its ‘Dump the Pump’ promotion in the month of June, offering 25 cent bus rides for the entire month as well as “Dial-A-Ride Dollar Off Days” for the van service passengers. Bus passengers will be able to pay the fare of 25 cents per trip all month long in June. Dial-A-Ride van passengers will get $1.00 off the original price of the fare - a $2.00 trip will cost $1.00 and a $3.00 trip will cost $2.00. Drivers do not carry cash or make change. Tickets may be purchased at the transit station at 109 Clay Street.

    The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) first started national ‘Dump the Pump’ day in June 2006 when gas prices had reached $3 per gallon and the public demand for public transportation was growing in response to high gas prices. According to the June 2015 Transit Savings Report, on the average, an individual in a two-person household can save $9,530 a year when he or she downsizes by one car and takes public transportation instead.

    National ‘Dump the Pump’ day highlights the many benefits that public transportation brings to individuals and communities. Besides individual financial savings, public transportation spurs economic growth for towns and cities, improves the environment and reduces our nation’s energy consumption.
    In a continued effort to highlight the many benefits of public transportation, KATS has been offering a series of monthly specials for 2016. Stay tuned each month to see what will be offered! Make sure you take advantage of these deals and tell your friends and family members. You can learn more about KATS at http://www.kingsporttransit.org.
