Bike & Ride
CAT wants to make it easy for people to get around.
To help achieve that goal, all of CAT’s fixed-route buses are equipped with bike racks so customers can take their bikes with them at no extra cost.
Having the ability to bring a bike along allows CAT customers to bike to their closest stop when it is too far away to walk or to get to more distant stops that better match their travel times. Customers can also use their bikes to travel the final leg of their trip when they get off at their stop.
General information about Catching a CAT with a Bike:
- No additional cost beyond bus fares
- No special passes or training required
- Bike racks can hold up to two conventional bicycles
- Bike racks available on a first-come, first-serve basis
- Passengers are responsible for loading and removing bikes
How to use the bike rack
- Wait at any bus stop with your bike. Please remove any loose items from your bike before the bus arrives.
- When the bus pulls up, indicate to the operator that you want to load your bike then go to the front of the bus where the bike rack is.
- Unfold the bike rack away from the bus.
- Lift up your bike and place it, front wheel first, into the wheel slot. When both slots are empty, use the slot closest to the bus first.
- The rack has a support arm in front of each wheel slot. Pull out the one in front of your bike and bring it over the front tire. Make sure everything is secure, but do not lock your bike to the rack.
- Get on the bus and enjoy the ride. Keep an eye out for other riders using the bike rack as you may need to get out and move your bike so they can access their bikes.
- When you’re ready to get off, tell the driver you need a moment to get your bike. Exit the bus at the rear like usual.
- Unhook the support arm, fold it down, and remove your bike. If there are no other bikes on the rack, please fold it up and secure it to the front of the bus.
- For your safety, return to the curb with your bike and wait for the bus to pull out before crossing the street.
Savannah is a great place to ride a bike, whether you are commuting to work or riding for recreational purposes.
