(Marietta, GA - March 1, 2017) The Cobb County Board of Commissioners approved the Cobb County Route 10X implementation plan at their Feb. 28 meeting.
The route will provide faster and more direct service between downtown Atlanta and Kennesaw State University's Kennesaw campus including connections to Georgia State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Savannah School of Art and Design including stops at Life University, KSU's Marietta campus and SunTrust Park. Route 10X is anticipated to shorten travel time by limiting stops to major destinations and relieve the often overcrowded CobbLinc Route 10, which has the highest ridership in the CobbLinc system and is on the the highest ridership transit routes in the southeast.
The new limited express route was the result of a transit study conducted by Kennesaw State University and Cobb Department of Transportation to improve transportation options for students and staff of Kennesaw State University and Life University. The route addresses the need for reliable transportation alternatives in the U.S. Highway 41/Interstate-75 corridors in Cobb County and downtown/midtown Atlanta and is anticipated to improve existing transit options. While the route is targeted towards university students, faculty and staff, it will also be open to the general public.
