Serving the Students of Chatham County

Savannah’s growing student population relies on CAT to get to their classes, to and from work, and to other exciting spots throughout Savannah. That’s why we offer a Youth Half-Fare on one-way trips, Day Passes and Monthly Passes; ID is required, so apply today!

And for those interested in our downtown bike sharing service, we offer annual CAT Bike memberships at 50% off with a valid student email address.

Read below for more details on how CAT serves and supports Chatham County’s youth.


For our parents and younger students, CAT provides fixed route service near numerous public and private schools throughout the county.
