GARDEN CITY, Ga. (WTOC) - Garden City made a big move becoming the first city in Chatham County to pass a contract paying to expand Chatham Area Transit services.

It’s a deal six years in the making.

The stops they’re adding are in District 3, represented by Councilwoman Natalyn Morris.

“We’ve been asking like you said for years and years and years to get some stops...get more stops down Highway 21. This is great to hear. Finally we’re able to get it in motion. My question to you is...when will this start?” she said.

Representatives from CAT attended the meeting and said the stops should be in place by the beginning of 2023.

The extra stops will be at Priscilla D. Thomas Way, Varnedoe Avenue and Smith Avenue, according to the agreement.

The deal will cost the city at least $90,000 over the course of five years.
