Students at Savannah State University rarely speak of riding public transportation, formally known as Chatham Area Transit (CAT). The CAT shouldn't cost more than $3 round trip. Most students prefer driving their own vehicles or riding with a friend, though. In addition, Savannah State has a free campus shuttle that runs on and off campus. So on that rainy day when you need to get to class, simply ride the shuttle; it will become very beneficial.
For the most part, with long-distance traveling (such as traveling back and forth to Atlanta), many would car pool with a friend or ride Greyhound. Greyhound costs approximately $50 each way.
