U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) announced that the Chatham Area Transit (CAT) has received a $1.8 million grant to purchase new zero-emission electric buses. Loeffler had sent a letter in support of the grant to the U.S. Department of Transportation. 

“The Chatham Area Transit provides four million passenger trips a year,” Loeffler said.“Local residents depend on the buses to get to work and school, while visitors use the system to visit the City Market and Forsyth Park or ride the Savannah Belles Ferry to Hutchinson Island. I am glad to see CAT receive this grant which will help purchase three new zero-emission buses that will improve reliability and reduce pollution.”
