(Lawrenceville, Ga., March 14, 2017) – With the reopening of Interstate 85, Gwinnett County Transit will resume its regular service Monday morning, ending trips from Gwinnett Park & Ride lots directly to the Chamblee and Doraville MARTA stations.

“The additional routes were only intended for the short-term,” said Karen Winger, Gwinnett County’s Transit Division director. “With the reopening of I-85, those direct routes are discontinued.”

GC Transit advises riders to visit the website at www.gctransit.com, where updated schedules have been posted. Informational signs will also be posted at the Park & Ride lots and riders were informed this week, Winger said.

In operation since 2001, Gwinnett County Transit offers Express, Local and Paratransit bus service. The County contracts out the operation of the system to Transdev North America Inc.

Regular Express Service operates Monday through Friday and includes five routes using the HOT lane on I-85. The Park & Ride lots at I-985, Sugarloaf Mills and Indian Trail provide free parking for bus riders. Local Service operates five routes Monday through Saturday connecting neighborhoods and businesses to Gwinnett's many cultural, shopping and educational opportunities. Paratransit Service for qualifying persons with disabilities operates in conjunction with the Local Service.
