Chatham Area Transit is the provider of public transportation in the Savannah, Georgia metropolitan area. The Authority was founded in 1986 after the collapse of previous transit providers. Services operate 7 days a week and 90% of county residents are within reasonable walking distance of a bus route.
Designed by Cogdell and Mendrala Architects and Wendel Duchscherer Architects & Engineers, the 12,000 SF project included renovation of the existing Greyhound Bus Station and an addition of transfer canopies for the new intermodal operation. The transfer canopies and resulting platform accommodated 14 bays for buses and one location for street-wheel streetcars. The $9.1 million project was designed and constructed to meet U.S. Green Building Council, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification Standards.
