CAT announces extended shuttle hours
Whether you visit downtown Savannah or work there, City of Savannah and Chatham Area Transit has some good news for you.
CAT announced they would be adding extended hours for the free DOT shuttle starting July 9. Those hours include Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m. , Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The service will still have special hours on holidays, so be sure to check on those when the time comes around.
Distrtict 2 Alderman Bill Durrence said he has been working closely with the city's parking and mobility teams for a while and is hoping to expand the shuttle service in the future.
"To have the shuttle system moving into the eastern part of the city and further south toward Victory Drive. I would love for us to have a shuttle system at some point that got as far as Habersham Village," said Durrence.
City of Savannah Mayor Eddie DeLoach said, “Downtown Savannah has so much to offer, great restaurants, lots of shopping options, our historic district monuments and museums, entertainment opportunities. It’s also where many of us come to work each day. We are excited that our partnership with CAT is going to help people get downtown and move around the City without putting a dent in their pocketbooks.”
CAT Board Chairman Howard French said, “Thanks to our partnership with the City of Savannah, we will extend the service hours for the DOT shuttle, which is a win-win for riders, who work downtown late into the evenings and for the city and business community. We see both residents and tourists using the shuttles and I want to thank the Mayor, his staff, and our elected officials for this great public transit partnership.”
