In 2015, the county bought six new buses for the circulator. The county’s share of the $3.3 million price tag was $670,000.
The core route will travel in a continuous loop around the Interstate-75/Interstate 285 interchange, with stops at the Cobb Galleria, Atlanta Marriott Northwest, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, in addition to the stadium.
A second, southern route will start at the Cumberland Transfer Center and travel down Cumberland Parkway and Paces Ferry Road to the Home Depot corporate offices.
“We’re going to be looking very carefully at the ridership of this new circulator,” said Chairman Mike Boyce. He said the county wanted to ensure that “the intent is being met by the service.”
