Planned Services Changes


Chatham Area Transit is planning to remove 12 bus stops located in Thunderbolt, which is outside of the tax district that funds CAT’s operations.

This removal was proposed after CAT received complaints from people questioning why the area was being served when Thunderbolt is not paying for the service.

The stops are mostly located on or near an almost-mile-long section of Whatley Avenue, between Victory Drive and Falligant Avenue.

The CAT bus route, 12 Henry, which currently serves the stops, will not be eliminated. Buses will continue to travel along the 12 Henry route, but will not be able to stop in Thunderbolt.

The nearest alternative stops are at Evergreen Avenue and Victory, Falligant and Whatley, and Falligant and College Street.

Stops on Falligant Avenue along the northside of Savannah State University are not in Thunderbolt and will remain in service. After speaking with SSU officials earlier this year about the stops, CAT intends to also meet with students after the summer break to discuss the change before removing the stops.

CAT officials were hoping that Thunderbolt would become a part of the CAT tax district so that service to the stops could be restored. That has not happened.

Below is a list of the impacted stops and the closest alternative stop, in addition to a link and embed code to a Google Map showing the location of the impacted stops and alternative stops.
