Local Control

The transit funding vote in November puts Gwinnett County in control of its transit planning, funding, projects and services. The Gwinnett Transit Plan is more aggressive than previous plans, implementing many major projects in the next 10 years. Designed with feedback from thousands of residents, the Gwinnett Transit Plan offers more transportation choices.

Nearly every city in Gwinnett County will gain new transit services, as well as access to new park-and-ride lots. Cities also gain more connections across the county and region, new microtransit zones and increased paratransit service coverage.

In this new Gwinnett Transit Plan, only the rail line connecting Gwinnett’s new Multimodal Hub at Jimmy Carter Boulevard to MARTA’s Doraville Station will be operated by MARTA, as stipulated by state law. Gwinnett County will have local control of all other transit planning, funding, projects and services, and system operations.

Gwinnett County continues to experience rapid growth, overwhelming some current transportation systems. The Gwinnett Transit Plan offers solutions to help address the challenges growth brings, particularly on roadways.

Three of the county’s 4 BRT routes and three of the county’s ART routes serve this area, meaning premium service, including ART to downtown Duluth.
