About CAT

CAT gets people moving around Savannah. Our transit services bring hard-working commuters to their jobs, students to their schools, and fun-seekers to entertainment, shopping areas, and restaurants. We provide mobility to residents of Chatham County as well as to large numbers of tourists, taking them to and from the airport, their hotels, and countless attractions.

Reporting to a Board of Directors, an Executive Director manages the day-to-day aspects at CAT. CAT staff use industry “best practices” to handle the details of operations, safety issues, vehicle maintenance, customer care, route design and scheduling, human resources, administration, ridership growth, capital planning, and grant administration. The Board of Directors controls policy issues such as fare structure and service levels.

CAT Stats


As a measure of system performance, CAT tracks the number of riders who choose public transportation each day. Using the various charts shared below, you can view trends from the past 4 weeks, individual months, and even a longview chart showing ridership since the beginning of our current fiscal year (July 1).

For tracking purposes, each week begins on a Monday and ends on Sunday.

Route Scores

In order to provide timely and efficient transit service, CAT analyzes individual route performance using a variety of metrics. Since different routes have different lengths and designs (for example, express routes, local routes, and circulating shuttles), a scoring system has been put in place that allows comparisons among all the routes. Scores are measured on factors such as passengers per hour, cost per passenger, and system averages.

See the chart below to compare individual route scores from the past 2 months. Hover your mouse over any bar to see the route name and score for that month.

  • Scores 1.00 and over – Above Average – Monitor to ensure continued high performance
  • Scores 0.75-0.99 – Acceptable – Monitor and consider slight adjustments
  • Scores 0.50-0.74 – Needs Improvement – Monitor and evaluate for moderate adjustments
  • Scores 0.49 and under – Poor – Monitor and consider discontinuing or revamping
