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, a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) 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.
As one of those industry best practices, CAT follows Board-approved Transit Service Guidelines for making decisions about where, when, and how often we serve the various areas of our county.

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.
Additional ridership information and other statistics are available in our monthly Board reports. CAT Board meetings are open to the public, and video recordings are available on our YouTube channel. Subscribe today!
