Convention Transportation Overview

If your group qualifies, Visit Savannah will personally coordinate your transportation plan. All you have to do is show up and enjoy the ride.

Our system is designed to quickly and easily move attendees between conference hotels and the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center or the Savannah Civic Center. Ground service consists of a shuttle bus fleet that runs from designated Historic District hotels to the Convention Center or Civic Center. We will help you coordinate shuttle schedules based on your group’s agenda.

In addition to ground transportation, the Chatham Area Transit-Savannah Bells Ferry Boat Service is available to all Savannah visitors free of charge. We will supplement the service with additional boats and hours to better suit the needs of your conference.

To see if you group qualifies for our comprehensive transportation package, see information below or contact Visit Savannah today.

Criteria to be met in order to qualify:

  • Meeting space in either the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center or the Savannah Civic Center
  • Rooms blocked at two or more hotels in the historic district
  • Total peak room nights 600 or more

Service automatically included when a group qualifies:

  • Ground transportation via bus, trolley or motor-coach from convention hotels to the trade center during “peak” hours, as defined by client agenda, and back to hotels at the end of the meeting day, sufficient enough to provide less than 20 minute wait at any hotel and trade center.
  • Limited ground transportation at all hours of the day to ensure attendees can get back to their hotel if need be.
  • Sufficient ferry transportation to ensure attendees do not wait longer than 10 minutes for a ferry during peak times and can get to the trade center at all hours needed as outlined by client agenda.
  • Hosts at each hotel and historic district docks at morning rush to be in constant contact with drivers and be aware of any possible delays of the ferry to facilitate attendees getting to their meetings on time.
  • Hosts at trade center and trade center dock for afternoon rush to facilitate attendees getting back to their hotels.

Note: Convention transportation, unless specifically requested by client and approved by the Executive Committee, is only designed to support the meetings held at the centers, not evening or off-site social events.
