Cobb County will participate in national
"Try Transit Week" from Sept. 10-16, continuing its ongoing efforts to
reduce traffic congestion and pollution.
Cobb Community Transit officials are encouraging residents who may not
have ridden the bus system recently to give it a try.
"We want to help residents get where they are going without the
frustration and expense of driving," said Laraine Vance, a
transportation planner with the Cobb County Department of
"Residents may not use CCT every day, but they might be
able to use it sometimes. Every little bit helps."
CCT's ridership was more than 2.7 million passengers in 1999. It uses 53
buses to transport riders on 13 local and two express routes, with
several accessing MARTA bus stops and rail stations.
The CCT system is
in the process of adding an extended route, additional buses and new
$6.5 million multi-use transit center on South Marietta Parkway.
CCT schedule information and fare rates are available online through
www.cobbcounty.org or by calling customer service at (770) 427-4444 /
TTD - (770) 419-9183. Special reduced fares are available for senior
citizens and persons with disabilities.
