Transit Development Plan
Gwinnett continues to experience unprecedented development and growth as families and businesses relocate to the area, making the county one of the largest and fastest growing in the state. To ensure Gwinnett remains vibrantly connected for decades to come, Gwinnett Transportation is conducting a detailed study of our Countywide public transit service. This study will evaluate travel demands, project future public transportation needs, and make recommendations to connect our thriving communities and residents to the places they want to go.
Each year, Ride Gwinnett enables one million customers to travel across the county and metro Atlanta through its local, commuter, and paratransit service routes. The Gwinnett Transit Development Plan will evaluate both current and future transit needs that also consists of service provided by regional partners, including the Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority Xpress and more.
What is the Transit Development Plan?
The Gwinnett Transit Development Plan will serve as a guiding strategy to evaluate shifting transportation demands based on the County’s recent and projected growth and align transit services and infrastructure investments with the identified priorities and needs. The TDP works as an essential component to address mobility challenges and improve the quality of life in Gwinnett and its cities.
What are the key phases of the Transit Development Plan?
The Transit Development Plan is an 18-month study that:
- Evaluates current transportation conditions
- Gauges current transportation needs through public and stakeholder engagement
- Anticipates future mobility demands
- Assesses opportunities for innovation in public transit
- Creates a blueprint for short, medium, and long-term transit improvements in Gwinnett
What are the goals of the Transit Development Plan?
Planning for mobility is charting a lifeline that connects Gwinnett to the region’s activity centers, improves local circulation, and enhances economic opportunity. The TDP will provide Gwinnett with a fresh perspective and a new opportunity to examine the impacts of transit improvements on lives — from the amount of time riders spend commuting and access to job opportunities and education to impacting health and wellness, reducing congestion, fostering economic development, and ensuring that Gwinnett continues to be the preferred community where everyone thrives.
I’m not a transit user. Why is the Transit Development Plan important to me?
Whether you are a daily transit user, occasional rider, or don’t use transit, transit plays a vital role in connecting people to the places they want and need to go in Gwinnett and across the metro Atlanta region. From jobs to healthcare facilities and festivals to city centers, public transit helps strengthen connectivity and accessibility to Gwinnett’s neighborhoods, business hubs, and major points of interest. Transit also reduces the number of vehicles on the road and supports economic development opportunities countywide.
How can I share my thoughts and opinions about the Transit Development Plan?
Gwinnett’s residents and stakeholders will play a vital role in shaping the vision, goals, and priorities of the TDP. Throughout the plan’s development, there will be multiple opportunities for the public to engage with the project team, complete surveys, and share thoughts that will help define the plan and shape the future of transit in Gwinnett.
