Buses will stop at the Dunwoody and Medical Center MARTA stations ,as well as at the intersection of Peachtree-Dunwoody Road and Concourse Parkway. Click here for schedules and more route information.

The announcement of the new Gwinnett route comes as the county ramps up work on a comprehensive transit plan, which Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash hopes will led to a referendum on transit expansion in 2018.

Gwinnett County Transit currently offers similar bus routes to the downtown Atlanta and Emory University areas but none to the Perimeter area.
