Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

March 13, 2019 - If you are considering attending the St. Patrick’s Day parade on Saturday, March 16 and do not want to deal with the hassle of traffic and parking fees, the City of Savannah and CAT’s shuttles may be the answer.

In partnership with city officials, CAT will operate three shuttles on March 16 to get people to downtown activities quickly. The shuttles only cost $5 roundtrip and special wristbands may be purchased prior to boarding at the locations listed below:

  • Westside Shopping Center on Hwy 80 in Garden City,

  • Eastside at the Island Towne Centre on Whitemarsh Island near Walmart on Hwy 80,

  • Southside at the rear of Savannah Mall, at the old Virginia College building facing Shawnee Street.

The shuttles will begin operating at 7 a.m. and begin return trips from the downtown Savannah JMR Transit Center, located at 601 W. Oglethorpe Ave. at noon. The return shuttles will operate until 4 p.m. After this time, customers will need to ride other scheduled CAT buses, which will be free, back to their parked vehicles.

CAT’s fixed-route buses and paratransit services (for people with disabilities) will be fare-free on Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16. However, many buses will be operating on detours during the Saturday parade. Customers needing to get to work are urged to plan early and contact customer service at (912) 233-5767 or check for updates on CAT’s website at catchacat.org.  

On Saturday, CAT’s Savannah Belles Ferry will operate two boats from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. and one boat until 12:20 a.m. from the Waving Girl dock. The rides are free.

In addition, transit officials are in discussions with the City of Port Wentworth and may be providing shuttle service from the city as they did last year.

Please visit the website at catchacat.org or the Chatham Area Transit Facebook page for updates.
