SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Chatham Area Transit Authority (CAT) is launching a new mobile app on Friday that is designed to make tracking their buses easier.

The real-time passenger information system is a time-saving initiative that gives customers the estimated arrival time of their bus. It's the latest example of CAT's commitment to making transit easy and accessible. One of the managers of the company says the app is convenient when it comes to bad weather conditions because customers will know ahead of time when they should go to the bus stop.

"Customers don't have to wait in the elements, you know if it's raining or anything. They just have a better way of tracking. A lot of transit agencies across the nation have jumped on the bandwagon of just making sure that they want to make things easier and accessible, and convenient for customers," said Shalonda Roundtree, Marketing and Business Development Manager.

The new CAT App is available Dec. 1 by searching Chatham Area Transit in the App Store or Google Play.
