The Chatham Area Transit (CAT) is offering free transportation on the CAT buses during the Spring semester to Georgia Southern Students.

The Student Zero-Fare Pilot Program aims to eliminate financial barriers, increase ridership, educate the next generation about public transit and promote confident, lifelong transit riders.

While fare prices are relatively low for one-way trips — only $1.50, frequent riders can find themselves spending more, such as $50 for a monthly bus pass.

The new program will do away with all costs for students K-12 and university attending.

How can I enter the program?

For Georgia Southern Students, all you need to do is show a valid student ID to the bus operator.

What routes stop near Armstrong?

Route 6 and Route 14 both have pickup points within close walking distance of the University. Route 6 is shorter and less active; however, it has notable stops such as Savannah Mall, Southwest Chatham Library, Food Lion and Walmart.

Route 14 is a more expansive, popular route. It will offer students a free ride directly through the heart of Savannah, all the way to City Market in downtown Savannah.
