Transportation in Athens

Athens Transit is a public bus system in the city of Athens, Georgia. The system began in 1976, and there are now 20 routes that run across the city. $1.75 is the normal fare. Athens Transit was known as "The Bus," but in 2018, it was rebranded as "Athens-Clarke County Transit" since it was one of the few surviving A-CC services that did not include the words "Athens-Clarke."

Most roads are laid up as loops and the outbound buses do not return on the same streets on a particular route. Major streets usually have two roads servicing them: outbound and inbound, which can be confusing. The Athens Multi-Modal Transportation Center, erected in 2006 on a brownfield near the North Oconee River, is where most routes end. The Multi-Modal Center won the American Institute of Steel Construction's 2007 Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture award, and it's built to support a future "Brain Train" in Atlanta.
