Another way to get to and from Tybee Island is official.
The Savannah to Tybee Island shuttle service kicked off Monday and will run through the summer season.
“I think it’ll be good for both the business community and residents both in Savannah and on Tybee,” said Mayor Jason Buelterman.
The shuttle service will twice a day, to and from the island six days a week
The route provided by Coastal Regional Commission will provide a rude for 15 passengers and would pick people up at the Visitor’s Center in Downtown Savannah at 8 a.m. and would return around 1:30 in the afternoon.
A second shuttle to Tybee Island will be available at the same location at 1:30 p.m and it would return to Savannah at 6:30 in the evening.
“It can be mutually beneficial for Savannah and Tybee because I do foresee it not just benefitting visitors that are staying in hotels or whatever in downtown Savannah for them to come out to Tybee but also as an opportunity for people on Tybee as a way to spend some time in town with their friends and family,” said Buelterman.
The service would cost 10 dollars per person per one way trip.
“My hope by the end of the summer is it is shown to be successful enough that they will continue it and hopefully expand it,” said Buelterman.
