SNELLVILLE – Gwinnett County Transit has tapped Snellville exclusively to debut the new Microtransit Pilot.
The initiative is a new transportation option that will run for free in Snellville beginning Sept. 17.
The program provides an on-demand public transportation option. Riders will be able to be picked up and dropped off door-to-door within a specific zone in Snellville.
After the duration of six months when the pilot is completed, Gwinnett County Transit will evaluate the data to identify what works well and what needs improvements, and will roll it back out to Snellville and Buford the following year. These are areas currently without local transit options, and they have been recognized in the Connect Gwinnett: Transit Plan.
Everyone can use this on-demand service option. All vehicles used are ADA accessible for individuals with disabilities. There will be no bike racks on the vehicles during the pilot.
Microtransit will run Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The free pilot service will last for six months.
To schedule a pickup time for Microtransit’s on-demand ride, you can download the free Microtransit app (available for iOS and Android devices), enter your pick-up and drop-off locations, your passenger count, and if you use a wheelchair or other mobility device, and your pick-up time to get Microtransit’s on-demand ride. Visit microtransitapp.com/how-it-works/ to learn more about the Microtransit app. To reserve your trip, you can also call Gwinnett County Transit Customer Service at 770-822-5010 and select the Microtransit option.
