CAT reduces evening service schedule
On July 20, Chatham Area Transit implemented a reduced nightly service schedule 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.
DOT shuttle and Senior Circulator services also have been suspended.
Local bus fare collection remains suspended to allow for rear-door boarding and CAT is encouraging social distancing by permitting only 15 to 20 people per bus or half the normal capacity.
Benton Blvd/Highlands closure
Due to construction in the area, CAT is unable to serve the stop at Highlands Boulevard and Benton Boulevard. The closest alternative stop is on Benton in front of the Waverly Place apartments.
West Gwinnett Street stop
Starting on June 8, routes 29 West Gwinnett and 17 Silk Hope will be unable to serve the stop in front of the City Lot on West Gwinnett near Stiles Avenue, due to a road widening project.
The nearest alternative stop to catch the 29 West Gwinnett:
Inbound: Stiles and Gwinnett Street
