ATTENTION: Due to a disruption in the supply chains, combined with a computer chip shortage, the CATcard Office has been experiencing difficulties in purchasing an adequate supply of card stock.  We would like to encourage anyone needing a replacement or new CATcard to take advantage of putting your CATcard digitally in your Apple or GPAY wallet.  It’s easy, convenient, and best of all it’s FREE!  The process only takes minutes.  Directions for Apple users can be found HERE and for Android users HERE.  We are able to provide a plastic CATcard without chips for BADGE use only.
