CAT buses to provide transportation to Civic Center
Posted on September 2, 2019
Savannah, GA— At 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Chatham Area Transit will waive fares and begin transporting residents without private transportation to the Savannah Civic Center to assist in the mandatory evacuation of Chatham County spurred by Hurricane Dorian.
Those without other transportation options can go to their closest CAT bus stop for this service.
At the Civic Center, residents will be able to board free charter buses to travel to inland shelters.
“The buses are meant to help get residents and visitors out of harm’s way,” said interim Executive Director/CEO Michael Brown. “We encourage those who do not have their own form of transportation to take advantage of the service.”
All of CAT’s fixed-route vehicles contain features and equipment that allow riders with disabilities to board, ride, and exit vehicles. Pets are allowed on the buses.
Similar transportation services will be provided when evacuees return.
For more information or assistance finding the nearest bus stop, call CAT’s customer service line at (912) 233-5767. In addition, Google Maps can show users where the closest stop is located. Simply select the transit option when seeking directions to the Civic Center.
