South Cobb Welcomes Flex Transit

CCT FlexCounty commissioners and dignitaries from the Cobb Chamber of Commerce, Atlanta Regional Commission and Cobb Transit Advisory Board kicked off an exciting new transit option in south Cobb in March. FLEX service begins Monday, March 23, and runs 7 a.m.-7 p.m., Mondays-Fridays.

FLEX buses provide curb-to-curb service to riders who make advanced reservations and also transport walk-up riders at designated collection points. As a hybrid service, it offers both convenience and flexibility in connecting riders with their destinations.

FLEX is designed to fill gaps in existing fixed-route service. FLEX operates in three “FLEX zones” in South Cobb: in Austell, Powder Springs and along Powder Springs Road. These zones create access to key destinations, like Cobb Hospital, and provide a critical connection to CCT Route 30, which runs from Marietta to the H.E. Holmes MARTA station. It is open to all riders.
