Gwinnett County Transit
Gwinnett County Transit
Transit Referendum Placed on November 2020 Ballot
Gwinnett commissioners on July 21 approved placing a 1 percent sales tax to fund a wide range of transit projects on the November 3 ballot. This is a new sales tax created by action of the state legislature in 2018 to fund transit; the Gwinnett County referendum will be the first proposed under this new tax.
If approved by voters, the Transit Special Purpose Local Option Sales and Use Tax would run for 30 years and fund 82 transit projects. The Board of Commissioners developed the list of projects with input from the Gwinnett County Transit Review Committee. The Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority then approved the list.
Under the referendum, the County would design and construct the transit projects; it would also operate and maintain the transit system except for the heavy rail extension, which MARTA must operate as stipulated by state law.

COVID-19 Pandemic Response
Local service – Starting Monday, June 1, Gwinnett County Transit will restrict boarding on local buses to 15 passengers in order to promote social distancing while still providing essential trips for people who need transit. Once a local bus reaches its 15-passenger capacity, it will display “Bus Full. Please wait for the next bus” until there is room on the bus. Customers should consider only taking essential trips so that others may still be able to get to their essential destinations as well. GCT also recommends passengers wear a facemask while riding on the bus.
Gwinnett County Transit customers using local buses will enter and exit buses using the REAR doors only, except for customers who require the accessibility ramp or kneeling function. Some seats on the local buses will not be accessible to promote social distancing. Because fare box equipment is located at the front door, Gwinnett County Transit is temporarily suspending fare collection on local buses.
Commuter service – Beginning Monday, June 1, Gwinnett County Transit will run commuter express bus routes to downtown Atlanta on a reduced schedule and will continue to suspend fare box collections until further notice.
Gwinnett County Transit encourages riders to follow CDC guidelines and wear a face mask while on the bus. To continue practice social distancing, only 14 passengers will be permitted on a commuter bus at a time.
To limit the spread of COVID-19, when available, hand sanitizer will be placed on buses for passenger use. We are also deep cleaning all buses and vans daily, an increase from once a month. The cleaning products used for deep cleaning kill germs at a rate of 99.9 percent. Gwinnett County Transit strongly recommends that passengers follow the CDC guidance on wearing a facemask.
Gwinnett County Transit began express bus service in 2001 and local bus service in 2002. GCT operates commuter express bus, local bus and paratransit service as part of the department mission to “enhance quality of life by facilitating the mobility of people and goods safely and efficiently.”
Commuter express bus service operates Monday through Friday and includes five routes using the HOT lane on I-85. Park and ride lots at I-985, Sugarloaf Mills and Indian Trail have been built or upgraded to provide free and convenient parking for bus riders. Local bus service operates seven routes Monday through Saturday connecting neighborhoods and businesses to Gwinnett County's many cultural, shopping and educational opportunities. Paratransit service for qualifying persons with disabilities operates in conjunction with the local bus service.
Customer service is available at 770.822.5010 Monday through Friday from 6:00am to 8:00pm and Saturday from 7:00am to 8:00pm.
