Proposed Adjustments

route_44 Barnard – Add MON-FRI Inbound service to Lamar & Dixon

Rationale: There is currently no Inbound service to Lamar & Dixon; customers requested it.

route_1212 Henry – Serve Island Towne Centre until 8:00 PM MON-SAT; Remove last HOLIDAY trip

Rationale: Average night-time ridership to Island Towne Centre is less than 3 people per hour. Running between 51st & Hopkins and SSU will save fuel, mileage, and other operating costs.

route_1414 Abercorn – Remove extra (tripper) buses MON-SAT at 1:45 PM and 4:15 PM Outbound and 3:00 PM and 5:30 PM Inbound. Shift current extra (tripper) buses on SUN-HOL to 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM Outbound and 12:30 PM and 2:30 PM Inbound.
Walmart on Fulton will be served Inbound Only, after Savannah Mall.

Rationale: After monitoring for 6 months, the MON-SAT trippers have not met operating effectiveness. The earlier time for SUN-HOL trippers is expected to help with on-time performance throughout the day and will be monitored for effectiveness.

route_1717 Silk Hope – Adjust Inbound times MON-SAT.

Rationale: Shifting some of the Inbound times based on operator feedback should improve on-time performance.

route_2727 Waters – Adjust Inbound times MON-FRI.

Rationale: Shifting some of the Inbound times based on operator feedback should improve on-time performance.

route_3131 Skidaway/Sandfly – Adding Outbound trips MON-FRI at 7:00 AM and 7:30 PM, adding Inbound trips MON-FRI at 8:00 AM and 8:30 PM.

Rationale: Heavy ridership on the 31 warrants additional service, and these additional trips should improve the route’s weekday on-time performance.

route 100 symbol100X Airport Express – Adding Sunday express service 9:30 AM-5:30 PM with hour frequency.
One-way express fare will be $5.00.

Rationale: This route has shown successful performance and growth for its first year. The increase in rate to an express fare allows additional hours to be added to the service for locals, tourists, and business commuters while still providing savings over other transportation options. 

route_114114X Abercorn Express – MON-FRI commuter express will travel between the Transit Center and Savannah Mall approximately 6:00 AM-8:00 AM and 5:00 PM-7:00 PM.
One-way commuter express fare will be $2.00.

Rationale: Studies show heavy commuter traffic from the southside to downtown. With parking at a premium in the downtown area and designated spaces at the Savannah Mall, this commuter express service is expected to lessen traffic and save commuters money. 

Liberty St Parking Shuttle logoLiberty St Parking Shuttle – Adding FRI-SAT late-night service, 9:30 PM-2:00 AM.

Rationale – The City of Savannah would like to provide additional, convenient, safe access to parking garages on weekend nights for workers and downtown visitors.

All other routes to remain the same.
