CAT services to stop by 10 p.m.

Chatham Area Transit will implement a reduced nightly service schedule on July 20 in response to low ridership in the evenings, as a result of most businesses and other destinations closing early during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The reduction means that all fixed-route buses and CAT Mobility paratransit vehicles will cease operations by 10 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays. Sunday services will continue operating under the regular schedule.

Some contracted services will remain suspended until further notice. These services include the Dot shuttle, SSU shuttle and Senior Circulator. Savannah Belles Ferry services will continue to run from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.


Customers should be aware of the safety measures and policies that will remain in place to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Until further notice, customers should be aware of the following:

  • Fixed-route bus capacity is limited to 12 to 15 passengers.
  • CAT Mobility buses are limited to three passengers.
  • Bus and CAT Mobility customers should ride only for essential trips such as work, medical appointments and grocery shopping.
  • Roundtrips or joyriding is prohibited.
  • Fare collection remains suspended and customers should use the rear doors if possible to avoid contact with the operator.
  • Passengers are urged to wear masks or face coverings while riding the bus or using CAT Mobility services.
  • Customers should not ride if sick.

Customer service will remain available at (912) 233-5767 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., Mon.-Fri., and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.
