Chatham Area Transit stops service in Thunderbolt

THUNDERBOLT, Ga. (WTOC) - As of Saturday, Oct. 12, there are no more CAT buses driving down Thunderbolt streets.

A few months ago, Chatham Area Transit announced the change because Thunderbolt hasn’t paid taxes for transit services for the last 30 years.

They anticipate this will impact about 50-80 travelers who take the bus each day.

“For some reason, CAT continued to serve those stops in Thunderbolt. We don’t know what happened, but late last year, we got some complaints about it and looked into it, and realized according to state law, we’re prohibited from continuing operations there," said Eric Curl, Chatham Area Transit.

CAT officially ended service to the town on Saturday and removed 12 bus stop signs over the weekend.
