At their Regular Session meeting on January 6, 2021, the Athens-Clarke County Mayor and Commission unanimously agreed to continue fare-free transit for passengers through June 30, 2021, the end of the current fiscal year. In response to the coronavirus pandemic and with support from the federal CARES Act, Transit did not charge fares for most of 2020.
Transit continues to operate under reduced service levels, including ending all bus service by 7:00 PM or earlier, suspending routes 23 and 28, and limiting routes 12 and 14 to hourly service. Ridership will continue to be monitored closely by Transit staff. Recommendations to return services to regular service levels will be made proportionally as ridership and transit service demands change.
Face masks are required for all Transit passengers. Transit buses continue to be sanitized frequently, while hand sanitizer is also available on all buses.
Routes, timetables, live bus tracking, and trip planning are available at www.accgov.com/transit and through the myStop app available on the Google Play and Apple App stores.
