Gwinnett Transit Enhances Service in Duluth Area

Additional bus stops added in commercial areas along Satellite Boulevard, Duluth Highway and Boggs Road.

Gwinnett County Transit (GCT) implemented service enhancements to both Express and Local Service starting Monday (Jan. 28). The improvements include additional bus stops along Satellite Boulevard, Duluth Highway and Boggs Road in the Duluth area.

Enhancements include linking bus routes, adding stops and extending service times to better meet the needs of downtown and local commuters without adding additional operating costs, according to a press release issued by Gwinnett County.

“These service enhancements will eliminate some transfers and long wait times as well as add stops within walking distances of more workplaces,” said Gwinnett Transit Director Phil Boyd. “Our hope is that these changes meet the demand of our riders and encourage others to ride knowing that Gwinnett County Transit is easy, convenient and reliable.”

The enhancements to Express Service include a better match up of bus departures with current passenger demand. GCT will adjust the evening departure times of some of the Express Service routes to match the current times of the downtown Atlanta route.

In addition, the 6:45 p.m. sweeper bus returns to serve all three Park and Ride lots through Routes 101, 102 and 103 by making one last stop to pick up commuters who may have worked late. Route 101 departures are scheduled every 15 minutes during peak morning commute times and every 30 minutes in the evening. Route 103 has 10 to 15 minute departures for the morning commute and 10 to 20 minutes in the evening. 

Local Routes 20 and 35 now have additional stops and extend to the MARTA Doraville Station, eliminating transfers and wait times along Buford Highway in Norcross. Route 30 restores bus stops along segments served prior to 2010 and extends service to Lawrenceville Highway and Jimmy Carter Boulevard to better serve the Lilburn area.

Route 40 now runs from the Gwinnett Transit Center to Remington Park Court and along Steve Reynolds and Satellite Boulevard. Route 10 makes additional stops in commercial areas along Satellite Boulevard, Duluth Highway and Boggs Road. 

New schedules are available online at www.gctransit.com.

Can't wait until the County Commission puts a binding referendum on the ballot & allow Gwinnett citizens another chance to join MARTA. Then, extend the rail line straight up the I-85 median / right of way.
