Ride with Downtowner


We get it. Parking downtown is difficult and some don't enjoy paying 1 or 2 dollars an hour. We've introduced Downtowner to help ease the parking congestion being experienced in the urban core.

The City of Savannah is offering downtown workers and visitors a flexible form of transportation through the use of the iPhone and Android app “Downtowner” which offers on demand rides within the downtown area.

The need for such a service for late-night downtown workers was identified by City Council during discussions of the Parking Matters study, which recommended extending meter enforcement into the evening, in addition to elimination of time limits and other changes intended to make parking more efficient downtown. The City also offers very low monthly rates in downtown garages for those who work at night -- $35 per month to park from 3 p.m. to 6 a.m. seven days per week in any City-owned garage.

The six-month trial program begins May 10 and will be available to any person between the hours of 5 p.m. and 5 a.m. The service area requires rides must begin and end within the borders of MLK Boulevard, Broad Street., Park Avenue and the Savannah River.
