Local News

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Chatham Area Transit (CAT) plans to give vaccinated riders ten free rides in December. CAT says the giveaway is a means to encourage more people to get the COVID-19 vaccine and reward those who already have.

All through the month of December, vaccinated riders  will be able to receive a free 10-ride card allowing for 10 rides anytime on CAT’s fixed-route buses or a 10-ride ticket book for CAT’s paratransit service, CAT Mobility. 

Customers can get the ride card by showing  their COVID-19 vaccination card and a form of photo ID  to the customer service representative at the ticket window of Joe Murray Rivers, Jr. Intermodal Transit Center.

The transit center is located at 610 West Oglethorpe Avenue. It is open from 7:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Officials says only the person obtaining the free ride card or ticket book can pick them up. 

The free ride card and ticket book can also be loaded to a customer’s smartphone if they have the Token Transit mobile ticketing app.
