Imagine having the option for professionals to easily access rapid transit – close to their Lilburn homes – for comfortably travel to high-paying tech and research facilities. This scenario may be a reality sooner rather than later as Gwinnett leaders ponder a new future for transit services.
For the first time in 16 years, Gwinnett County Transit (GCT) is taking a comprehensive look at its routes and services with a goal of making improvements. The Connect Gwinnett Transit effort will lead to new plans and improved services. For the Lilburn business community, this could include the establishment of new bus rapid transit services.
The greater Lilburn area is in serious need of park/ride options and bus rapid transit routes connecting commuters who daily drive Highway 29 to such destinations as Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Establishing new local access points and routes would greatly reduce commuter congestion while providing a better quality of life benefit. Even more of these skilled employees would likely make their homes in this community, supporting local businesses and helping to increase property values.
Lilburn business leaders, commercial property owners and residents need to actively engage Connect Gwinnett Transit. Please take a moment to view these resources, and join in available meetings and online surveys to share your thoughts.
