Gwinnett transit plan now includes rail. Here’s how you can weigh in.

The folks from Gwinnett County are wrapping up the creation of their comprehensive transit plan — a more-than-year-long study that, among many other things, includes a proposal to extend heavy rail from the Doraville MARTA station to the Norcross area. 

(Read more about that tasty little nugget here.)

Before the plan is completed, the county will be collecting one more round of public input. Below is a list of formal public meetings regarding the plan, which begin Saturday, as well as a compilation of other community events at which folks behind the plan will be live and looking to chat. 

This may be residents’ final formal chance to weigh-in on transit expansion in Gwinnett before a referendum, which could be held as early as November.

County leaders said it will all probably come down to money.
