February 4, 2019 - Elected officials with the City of Tybee Island recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to have transit service from Savannah to Tybee Island be reinstated and begin March 4. Upon signing, Mayor Buelterman commented, “We are excited that this wonderful service is available not only for visitors, but for our residents as well.”

The service, operated by the Coastal Regional Commission (CRC), will be offered Monday through Saturday, except for designated holidays, with two separate runs.

The route will begin at the Savannah Visitor Center at 301 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and transport individuals to Tybee Island three times each day. The transport fare, per rider, is $10 for a one-way trip. The departure times from Savannah will be at 8 a.m., 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. to arrive at the Tybrisa/Strand Roundabout in downtown Tybee, and then in front of 35 Meddin Drive across from the Tybee Light Station. The return trips from Tybee will be at the Tybrisa/Strand Roundabout at 8:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., returning to the Savannah Visitor Center.

Please keep in mind that, depending on road conditions, delays may occur. Holiday exemption days as observed by the CRC include the following: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King’s birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.
