Savannah–The Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon will significantly impact Chatham Area Transit’s bus operations on Saturday, Nov. 3. All buses will be rerouted or delayed due to the marathon.
None of CAT’s fixed-route buses will operate from the downtown Joe Murray River, Jr. Intermodal Center beginning as early as 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3 because of the marathon. However, temporary staging or connecting areas will be set up at Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd at Anderson Street and Jefferson at Jones Streets for customers wishing to board CAT buses.
For the convenience of customers, CAT will operate shuttles in smaller vehicles to and from the downtown transit center to the temporary connecting locations; customers should anticipate delays due to the marathon and street closures.
The dot shuttle and Senior Circulator will not operate during the marathon but will begin regular operations after the marathon when downtown streets have been reopened to traffic.
CAT’s Savannah Belles Ferry will operate as follows:
Nov. 1 – Two boats will operate between 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. from the Waving Girl and City Hall docks.
Nov. 2 – Three boats will operate from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. Two vessels will serve the City Hall dock and one will serve the Waving Girl dock.
Nov. 3 – Two boats will operate from 4:30 a.m. until 7:30 a.m., but will only serve the Waving Girl dock.
