Catch a CAT for free in honor of Try Transit Week

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

If you're a student looking for a ride across town Tuesday, you can hop on a Chatham Area Transit bus for free. 

Tuesday is the second day of Try Transit Week, and CAT officials are hoping to get folks to try public transit for at least one day during the week. 

If you're a student with a school ID from grades K through 12 or you attend college, then your fare on Tuesday is free. For those not in school, you can donate a canned food item on the bus like tuna, chicken, beef stew or peanut butter, and your one-way trip will be free as well. 

Chatham Area Transit is offering the following promotions to encourage local residents to try public transportation:

ALL WEEK FOR ALL PASSENGERS – "Cans for a Ride"- Donate one or more of the following canned items to our Second Harvest food drive on the bus for each trip and your ride is free (tuna, chicken, beef stew or peanut butter).

Monday, Sept. 23 – Government Employees - City, County, State and Federal Employees in uniform or with a valid ID ride free

Tuesday, Sept. 24 – Students– K-12/College students in uniform or with a valid ID ride free

Wednesday, Sept. 25 – Seniors & Disabled Citizens– Passengers 62 years and older and passengers with disabilities ride free

Thursday, Sept. 26 – Double Donation Day – Donate two or more canned food items to our Second Harvest food drive & get a DAY PASS

Friday, Sept. 27 – Passengers & Employees Appreciation Day - We'll have something extra-special for our employees and passengers on this day.  We encourage everyone to spread the gratitude.
