SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - UPDATE: The changes to the ferry service are no longer in place after Savannah Mayor Van Johnson announced Monday that the curfew would not be implemented in the coming days.


Chatham Area Transit’s Savannah Belles Ferry service will stop running at 8 p.m. each day as a result of the citywide curfew enacted by Savannah Mayor Van Johnson on Sunday.

The curfew will run from 8:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. nightly while necessary, according to Mayor Johnson.

While the curfew is in place, CAT officials say the ferry service will operate during a morning shift from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and during an evening shift from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Transit officials say the ferries are running at half their normal capacity and are cleaned after each shift, in response to COVID-19.
