Chatham Area Transit (CAT) announced a partnership with the City of Savannah, which reinforces its commitment to the safety of its riders and staff.
CAT added that it calls upon its passengers to join in this collective mission of vigilance and support: "If you see something, say something."
"Public transportation is an urgent need in our community, and the safety of our operators and passengers is of our utmost priority," said Mayor Van R. Johnson. "The City of Savannah will not tolerate indecent or criminal acts committed against either, and we will work with Chatham Area Transit in prosecuting perpetrators to the highest extent of the law."
