Savannah's historic district is best explored on foot but visitors should note that paths and steps down to the waterfront can be steep. Countless walking tours are offered. Savannah's CAT (Chatham Area Transit Company) provides a free, convenient shuttle service operating throughout the historic district, connecting shops, hotels, attractions and other bus routes. CAT also provides a fixed route bus service throughout the city and surrounding county. The Belles Ferry leaves the ferry landings on River Street, connecting to Hutchinson Island at regular intervals, and is also free. The city has numerous car hire companies and several taxi companies. A horse and carriage ride through the city is also an option, though more for the experience than to get from Point A to Point B.
