Changes to the 2017-2018 Bus Routes effective August 28, 2017.
The new bus routes to Commerce and Madison have had mixed participation. Two stops that have not had any riders will be deleted and other stops will be added in order to better serve the families in those ares. There are minor time changes to the unchanged stops, so please check the schedule carefully.
On the Commerce/Jefferson Route, the QT stop in Commerce will be deleted and the Jefferson Kroger stop will move to the Jefferson Civic Center Downtown. The Chevron Station in Nicholson will be added, and the Homewood Hills stop in Athens will be unchanged.
On the Madison/Watkinsville Route, the Madison Lowes stop will be deleted and the Golden Pantry in Bishop on the corner of 441 and 15 will be added. The Watkinsville First United Methodist stop will be unchanged.
