More transit in Gwinnett? Weigh in this weekend

Gwinnett County officials wants to hear your thoughts on transit expansion — and they’re taking a bus ride to prove it. 

Gwinnett recently launched its comprehensive transit planning process, a year-long undertaking aimed at discovering what short-, medium- and long-term transit options might be most feasible for a county expected to be Georgia’s most populous by 2040

As part of the process, county “transit teams” composed of staff, consultants and volunteers will hit the road Saturday, making stops at 12 different locations across Gwinnett. At public places including The Forum in Peachtree Corners, the Mall of Georgia in Buford, the Shoppes at Webb Gin in Snellville and Santa Fe Mall in Duluth, they’ll share information about the transit study and solicit public input.

That input-gathering will include administering a survey that’s also available online here.
