The Multimodal Hub is a major connection point for local and regional transportation services. From the Multimodal Hub at Jimmy Carter Boulevard, rail will extend to MARTA’s Doraville Station. Transit riders may arrive at the hub from trains, buses, BRT/ART, cars, or bike/pedestrian trails.
Bus rapid transit (BRT) uses high-capacity, premium vehicles to deliver fast, reliable service. BRT runs primarily in dedicated lanes not available to other vehicles and stops only at specific stations. BRT routes also include signal priority, off-board fare collection, elevated platforms and enhanced stations.
Arterial rapid transit (ART) gets more people where they need to go, traveling in major corridors across the county with high-capacity, premium vehicles. ART moves ahead of traffic in “queue-jumper” lanes that go around major backups on heavily traveled corridors, stopping less frequently than local buses.
Direct Connect provides all-day service to Gwinnett park-and-ride lots from three MARTA rail stations. It supplements commuter bus service, offering schedule flexibility for things like doctor’s appointments or childcare.
Commuter bus routes take workers from park-and-ride lots to major employment centers across the region, connecting to Downtown/Midtown Atlanta, Emory/CDC, Perimeter Center and Buckhead from 9 park-and-ride lots across the county.
23 local bus routes, including improvements to the existing 7 routes plus 16 new routes, improve coverage and connectivity across the county. Routes will have more frequent service, start earlier, end later, and include Sunday service.
Microtransit is offered in 8 defined geographic areas throughout the county. This app-based, on-demand pick-up and drop-off bus service to transit and community destinations supplements other transit routes and expands coverage areas.
There will be new transit centers at Infinite Energy, Georgia Gwinnett College and in Lawrenceville and improvements to the Gwinnett Place Transit Center.
There will be added fixed-route coverage in the County, including routes in Lilburn, Sugar Hill, Suwanee, Buford and Snellville.
Paratransit provides door-to-door service for those with mobility challenges.
Paratransit coverage would increase from covering 20% of Gwinnett County’s land area currently to covering 74%.
There will be extended evening and Sunday service on ALL routes.
