[ARCHIVED] Public hearings set for Gainesville Connection, Dial-A-Ride elimination

The Gainesville Connection staff has scheduled public hearings to receive public comment about the proposed closures of Dial-A-Ride vanpool service and Gainesville Connection fixed-route bus service. If approved, the changes will take effect June 30.

Proposed changes include:

• Elimination of entire Gainesville Connection bus service (Routes 10, 40 and 50)

• Elimination of entire Dial-A-Ride vanpool service

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the proposed changes are approved, the new WeGo vanpool service – which debuted in December 2020 – will serve as the sole public transit service provided by Gainesville and Hall County governments. This service will operate from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday throughout Hall County effective July 1. Service may be obtained by using a smartphone to download the WeGo Powered by Via app through the online Google Play or Apple stores. Individuals who don’t have a smartphone may request rides by calling 770-503-3333, Option 1.

The public is invited to weigh in on these changes at any one of six public hearings slated for:

• 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 2, at the Gainesville Connection Administration Building, located at 687 Main St., Gainesville

• Noon, 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday, June 3, via Zoom – directions for which are provided below
