Gwinnett County Transit

Service Update (in effect 6/1/2020):

Local service – Starting Monday, June 1, Gwinnett County Transit will restrict boarding on local buses to 15 passengers in order to promote social distancing while still providing essential trips for people who need transit. Once a local bus reaches its 15-passenger capacity, it will display “Bus Full. Please wait for the next bus” until there is room on the bus. Customers should consider only taking essential trips so that others may still be able to get to their essential destinations as well. GCT also recommends passengers wear a facemask while riding on the bus.

Gwinnett County Transit customers using local buses will enter and exit buses using the REAR doors only, except for customers who require the accessibility ramp or kneeling function. Some seats on the local buses will not be accessible to promote social distancing.  Because fare box equipment is located at the front door, Gwinnett County Transit is temporarily suspending fare collection on local buses.

Commuter service – Beginning Monday, June 1, Gwinnett County Transit will run commuter express bus routes to downtown Atlanta on a reduced schedule and will continue to suspend fare box collections until further notice.

Gwinnett County Transit encourages riders to follow CDC guidelines and wear a face mask while on the bus. To continue practice social distancing, only 14 passengers will be permitted on a commuter bus at a time.

To limit the spread of COVID-19, when available, hand sanitizer will be placed on buses for passenger use. We are also deep cleaning all buses and vans daily, an increase from once a month. The cleaning products used for deep cleaning kill germs at a rate of 99.9 percent. Gwinnett County Transit strongly recommends that passengers follow the CDC guidance on wearing a facemask.
