CAT Observes Try Transit Week
Posted on September 20, 2013
Chatham Area Transit has designated September 23 – 27, 2013 as “Try Transit Week.” “Try Transit Week” is a national event sponsored by the American Public Transit Association (APTA) aimed at getting motorists out of their cars and onto public transit for at least one day during the week. It promotes awareness of public transportation and its practical use of blending with other forms of transportation, i.e., park-and-rides, shared rides, bicycling and walking. It is also a perfect opportunity to express appreciation to the people who contribute to the success of public transportation. Chatham Area Transit is also holding a canned food drive to assist America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. Boxes will be provided on all CAT vehicles for riders to donate canned foods and non-perishable items.
Chatham Area Transit is offering the following promotions to encourage local residents to try public transportation.
ALL WEEK FOR ALL PASSENGERS – “Cans for a Ride”- Donate one or more of the following canned items to our Second Harvest food drive on the bus and your trip is FREE (tuna, chicken, beef stew or peanut butter).
Monday, September 23, 2013 – Government Employees – City, County, State and Federal Employees in uniform or with a valid ID ride FREE.
Tuesday, September 24, 2013 – Students– K-12/College students in uniform or with a valid ID ride FREE.
Wednesday, September 25, 2013 – Seniors & Disabled Citizens– Passengers 62 years and older and passengers with disabilities ride FREE.
Thursday, September 26, 2013 – Double Donation Day – Donate two or more canned food items to our Second Harvest food drive and get a DAY PASS.
Friday, September 27, 2013 – Passengers & Employees Appreciation Day – We’ll have something extra-special for our employees and passengers on this day. We encourage everyone to spread the gratitude.
