Gwinnett County approves funding for study for cost of bus corridor

By AccessWDUN staff

The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners has approved an agreement with three community improvement districts (CID) to fund a cost study of a Bus Rapid Transit corridor between Doraville and Sugarloaf Mills.

The agreement with the Gateway85, Gwinnett Place and Sugarloaf CIDs outlines financial commitments and the management structure for a study to estimate the capital and operating costs for the Bus Rapid Transit corridor.

Each CID will contribute $25,000 toward the cost of the study, which is estimated to cost $100,000. Gwinnett County will manage the study and provide the balance of funding from the 2017 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.

According to the Federal Transit Administration, bus rapid transit, or BRT, is a bus-based transit system that may include dedicated lanes, traffic signal priority, off-board fare collection, elevated platforms and enhanced stations.
