Paratransit

CAT’s paratransit service, CAT Mobility, is specifically designed to transport eligible persons with disabilities in Chatham County. This includes people who are unable, due to a permanent or temporary physical or mental disability, to use the fixed-route public transportation system.

CAT Services

Buses

CAT operates more than 60 fully-accessible buses on 20 routes, including the Airport Express, and university service. Our operators are extensively trained to know the city well and to drive their vehicles safely. In addition, operators are taught to act as city ambassadors and be as helpful as possible while getting passengers safely to their destinations.

Dot Shuttle Savannah Belles Ferry

Thanks to a partnership with the city of Savannah, CAT operates a free downtown shuttle called the dot. In addition, the Savannah Belles Ferry system links River Street to Hutchinson Island by providing free passage across the Savannah River.

CAT Mobility

Because we believe everyone deserves access to public transportation, CAT provides a reservation-based, curb-to-curb mobility service, CAT Mobility, to eligible persons with disabilities in Chatham County. To learn about eligibility and other aspects of the paratransit program, visit our accessibility section.

Catching a CAT

Choose one of the options below to determine which CAT to catch:

  1. Google Trip Planner
    In the picture at the top of each page on our website is a green box that says “Plan Your Trip.” Clicking on this opens up our Google Trip Planner where you can enter destinations and desired times and let Google plan your trip. Results will be shown on Google Maps, where you’ll see the various transit options available and you can customize your travel plans further.
  2. System Map
    The system map offers a color-coded map of all the routes served by Chatham Area Transit. Find which route best serves your needs and then visit our Maps & Schedules page to view that route’s individual map and timetables.

CAT Connections

CAT buses connect to each other in various locations throughout town. Major intersections include the transit center, the Oglethorpe Mall, the Savannah Mall, and various Walmarts throughout the county. Feel free to call our Customer Service Ride Line at (912) 233-5767 for details on specific routes.

If you expect to make a connection, please remember to ask for a transfer before paying the fare on the first bus of your trip. Transfers last for 90 minutes and are free, however, they are used for connecting one route to another. They are not valid for travel on the same route.
