Plan Ahead for Metro Commuting

Spring break’s end signifies a real test for an already strained metro-area travel system. Drivers are searching for new ways to navigate as a result of the I-85 bridge collapse and reconstruction of the I-285/SR 400 interchange.

But there is good news. In addition to progress on bridge repairs, Gwinnett County Transit and Xpress will offer express service connecting the six Gwinnett and Xpress Park & Ride lots to MARTA’s Chamblee and Doraville stations. Click here for more details.

Regardless of your destination, the CID is encouraging everyone to plan ahead. Take a little extra time now to find the best travel alternatives by consulting the following resources:
