Georgia Statewide Transit Plan (SWTRP)
Improving Access and Mobility in 2050 | #iam2050

The purpose of the GDOT Statewide Transit Plan is to coordinate with local governments, planning agencies, and transit providers to document transit needs across the state and prioritize future investments. The plan will support GDOT’s multimodal planning efforts and identify strategies to ensure all Georgians have access to public transit.

159 Counties in Georgia

  • 124 counties have transit service
  • 35 counties do not have transit service


Opportunities for involvement will be posted to this site in the future. GDOT will engage a range a stakeholders and interested parties throughout the study process, including but not limited to: transit agencies and operators, county and city governments, regional commissions, metropolitan planning organizations, relevant state & federal agencies, and representatives of educational institutions, employers, and healthcare providers. GDOT will incorporate existing local & regional transit plans into this statewide transit plan.
