Link Forsyth will leverage public input and technical data to formalize recommendations for both long and short-term public transportation services within the county as it relates to these services. Regional connections, such as those provided by the State Road and Tollway Authority’s (SRTA) Xpress Service, will also be considered for inclusion in the master plan.
“These open house meetings will provide a great opportunity for residents to help shape the future of public transportation in the county,” said Forsyth County Director of Public Transportation Roy Rickert.
Link Forsyth is funded in partnership with the Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority (ATL), the transit planning authority for the 13 counties in the Atlanta metro region.
Recommendations from Link Forsyth are anticipated to be incorporated into the Atlanta Regional Transit Plan that is managed by ATL under the State of Georgia’s regulations.
