SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Savannah residents will soon have rental bicycles as a public transit option.

The Savannah Morning News reports that Chatham Area Transit will launch a pilot bike-sharing program sometime in January.

Two downtown bike stations have already been set up, though authorities won't decide on an exact launch date until they finish testing the GPS systems attached to the bicycles.

Riders will be able to rent the bikes for $2 per half-hour. The program also will offer 7-day pass for $20 and an annual pass for $60. Bikes will be available from 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., and riders can return the bikes to either downtown rack.

Local transit officials say it's the first municipal program of its kind in Georgia.
