Shuttle & Bus Services

Savannah State University has a contract with Chatham Area Transit (CAT) to provide transportation for our students. The contract is paid for with the Mandatory Transportation fee paid for by students (currently $45 per semester). Students with a valid SSU ID card can ride any regular CAT bus route in the city or county for free.

On-Campus Shuttle (Route 80)

The on-campus Shuttle runs from 7:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. Friday, on class days in the Spring and Fall. There are two shuttles running from 8:15 a.m. until 3:15 p.m., except for a 20 minute break for each driver (one at 11:15 a.m. and one at 1:15 p.m.) when there is one shuttle. Please allow 10-15 minutes during the time there are two shuttles and 20-30 minutes during the time there is one shuttle, depending on weather and traffic on campus.

Livingston Avenue Shuttle (Route 80L)

This shuttle runs Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the Spring and Fall Semesters.  The route goes from the Student Union to the Marine Sciences building on Livingston Ave. 

CAT Routes Near Campus

CAT routes 31 and 12 both stop near campus (see for more information on routes and how to transfer). SSU students can "Catch a CAT" on any route by showing your valid SSU ID!

We ask that you please be considerate and offer your seat to students who may have difficulty standing, and that you show courtesy to the bus drivers. In addition, for safety reasons, it is important that you enter through the front door and exit through the back door, crossing the street behind the bus.

For assistance, please contact the Auxiliary Services Office at 912-358-3109.
