Transit Development Plan
The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners approved the Transit Development Plan in anticipation of the county’s recent population and economic growth spike. Driven by Gwinnett Transportation with community input over an 18-month period, the TDP identifies short- and long-term recommendations for the county’s transit system. It addresses the system as a whole and includes capital priorities, operational improvements, and supporting infrastructure.
The TDP comes at an important time for the county given growth, demographic shifts, increasing congestion, ongoing construction, and large redevelopment opportunities. The plan also offers a fresh perspective and highlights the benefits that transit improvements have on people’s lives — whether it’s enhancing access to job opportunities and education, improving health and wellness, or fostering economic development.
Take a look at the Transit Development Plan to learn how these improvements will benefit your lifestyle, providing enhanced access to more places, more jobs, and more opportunities.
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.
