BATON ROUGE, LA (FOX44) - The CEO of the Capital Area Transit System says he's hopeful a mix of grants and a private donation will keep the busses rolling past October.  That's when the system was set to run out of money and stop service.

James Marshall says his staff has found a different mix of funding for CATS.   A private entity is also set to donate 500 thousand dollars.   That entity hasn't been identified.

CATS has a $1.5 million dollar deficit.   Marshall says CATS hasn't been able to plug the deficit.
