Gwinnett County asking for public's input on transit

By Lawson Smith Reporter

Gwinnett County is seeking input from the community through a short online survey as they reimagine the future of public transit with their Transit Development Plan. 

 “Local transit has the unique ability to transform and enhance quality of life for residents and visitors to the county,"  Gwinnett County Chairwoman Nicole Hendrickson said. "To keep our transit system going in the right direction, we must constantly evaluate what we’re doing right and what can be done better. This feedback from our community will be an integral part of that process.”  

In recent years, Gwinnett County transit has has been enabling travel across the county and metro Atlanta through its local, commuter and paratransit service routes.

The plan will help assess both current and future transit needs. 

“Our transit services are a vital component of our comprehensive approach to providing reliable, safe and affordable multimodal transportation solutions for all,” said Gwinnett Transportation Director Lewis Cooksey. “Transit impacts everyone, whether directly or indirectly, so it’s imperative that all residents and stakeholders have a say in where we go from here.”

The survey will remain open until Aug. 15 at and is accessible in multiple languages. For more information about the TDP or to access frequently asked questions, visit
