On Friday and Saturday, October 14 and 15, 2011, Chatham Area Transit launch ed its new late-night weekend service – the CAT Prowler.
The CAT Prowler is a new weekend night shuttle bus between Savannah State University and downtown Savannah.
On its route the CAT Prowler serves the Colonial Grand Apartments, Jasmine Apartments, Alhambra Apartments and the Island Tree Apartments.
Thanks to a partnership with Savannah State University, CAT was able to organize, plan and develop this new service serving both SSU students and residents in the area. SSU Students ride the CAT Prowler for free with a valid student ID; all other customers pay the regular fare, $1.50 one-way/$3.00 roundtrip.
The CAT Prowler will operate between 8:00pm and 2:00am on Friday and Saturday nights. The first shuttle bus toward downtown leaves Savannah State at 8:00pm, and the last shuttle bus from downtown toward Savannah State leaves at 2:00am.
Dr. Chadwick Reese, CAT’s Chief Executive Officer states “We are delighted to be able to offer this late-night weekend service. It is one of many steps of redefining public transit in Savannah to meet customers’ mobility needs.
We also hope that the CAT Prowler will improve safety on our streets by being an attractive alternative to driving a car on Friday and Saturday nights.”
