Savannah has become the first community in Georgia to offer a public bike sharing program.
It’s starting small – just two stations and 16 bicycles. But organizers of the program CAT Bike say they hope to eventually expand the program, which is patterned after those in cities from Boston to Des Moines to Denver.
Savannah’s Mayor Pro Tem Van Johnson says the city’s flat terrain and warm climate make it easily walkable and bikeable.
“We know that world-class cities have world-class transportation systems, and they’re more than just buses,” Johnson said at a press conference in Savannah Friday morning.
