The CobbLinc Route 10X implementation plan was approved by the Cobb County Board of Commissioners at its Feb. 28 meeting.
The route will offer faster and more direct service between midtown Atlanta and the Kennesaw State University (KSU) Kennesaw campus and provide connections to Georgia State University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Savannah School of Art and Design. Additional stops include Life University, KSU's Marietta campus and SunTrust Park. Route 10X is anticipated to shorten travel time by limiting stops only to major destinations and to relieve the often overcrowded CobbLinc Route 10, which has the highest ridership in the County's transit system and one of the highest in the Southeast at large.
The new limited express route was the result of a transit study conducted by KSU and the Cobb County Department of Transportation to improve transportation options for students and staff members of KSU and Life University. The route addresses the need for reliable transportation alternatives on the U.S. Highway 41/Interstate 75 corridors in Cobb County and downtown/midtown Atlanta. While the route is targeted toward university students and staff, it will also be open to the general public.
