Purchasing used CATA equipment

CATA disposes of all assets through public auction.  Listings are posted on the Public Surplus website as the need arises, and items run the gamut.  Examples of things sold in the past include office products/furniture, shop equipment, building supplies, used vans or maybe and even 40-foot buses.

You can watch for listings at and utilize the section on the right titled “Browse auctions within area” (Select Region = Pennsylvania / Select Agency = Centre Area Transportation Authority).

You can also have alerts sent to you via email by selecting “Login” at the top left to create an account.  After your account is created, select “My Stuff” at the top right, followed by “Interest List” in the column on the left.  From there you can choose the alerts you prefer.
