About the Brockton Area Transit Authority

Bat Buses


The Brockton Area Transit Authority (BAT) was established in 1974.  BAT’s Intermodal Transportation Centre (BAT Centre), adjacent to MBTA Old Colony Rail Station, serves as the transit hub for the South Shore and Greater Brockton areas.  BAT has a distinctive coalition with the local business community; BAT’s innovative transportation solutions have contributed positively to their service area’s economy.

A study conducted by Bridgewater State University in the mid 1990s demonstrated that BAT’s economic impact on its service area was estimated at 73 million dollars.  The Metro South Chamber of Commerce as well as the Community Bank have officially recognized BAT for its positive economic impact on the region.
