CAT Will Suspend All Operations On Wednesday Due To Hurricane Idalia

Due to the potential impacts of Hurricane Idalia, Chatham Area Transit (CAT) will suspend all operations on Wednesday, August 30. All operations include Fixed-Route, Paratransit, DOT, and the Savannah Belles Ferry.

The Savannah Belles Ferry will end operations at 9 p.m., Tuesday, August 29, to prepare for tomorrow’s weather event.

CAT continues to monitor Idalia with Chatham County, the City of Savannah, and the Chatham Emergency Management Agency as preparations for Thursday are still under review.

CAT recently transitioned to a new temporary service modification on July 17, 2023. We encourage all riders to check the “Modified Schedules and Map” page on our website to get the most updated bus times and information.

Georgia Power is actively engaged in monitoring conditions and preparing for restoration efforts to begin as soon as it is safe to do so. Georgia Power has developed a series of storm videos and tips for before, during, and after a storm on its Outage and Storm Center site at

The site includes important preparedness and safety information such as the following:

  1. Before a Storm:  Know your risks of flooding and tropical storm or hurricane strength winds. Check your emergency kit, unplug major appliances and charge cell phones in case you lose power. Follow any evacuation orders from local authorities.
  2. During a Storm: Have several ways to receive emergency notifications and weather updates. Take safe shelter inside a sturdy building away from windows and doors. Avoid contact with conductors of electricity – appliances, metal objects and water.
  3. After a Storm: Never touch any downed or low-hanging wire, including telephone or TV wires that touch a power line. Never pull tree limbs off power lines or enter areas with debris or downed trees as downed power lines may be buried in wreckage. Additionally, do not walk or drive through standing water or step onto saturated ground where downed lines may be present.

Before severe weather strikes, customers are encouraged to become familiar with Georgia Power’s Outage Map within the Storm Center that makes tracking and reporting outage information easy.
