Transit

Lumpkin County Transit is a community service program intended to be used by passengers within Lumpkin County boundaries.

Mission Statement

The mission of Lumpkin County Transit is to provide needed transportation to the citizens of Lumpkin County on a timely basis at an affordable price.

Lumpkin County Transit continues to serve riders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those that choose to use our service will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing while on our buses. 

Our guidelines are to ensure the safety of our passengers, and bus operators, and we ask that if you are feeling unwell you do not ride the bus. 

Upon arrival of the bus at your location, the driver will exit the bus and wait for you to approach the bus.  The driver will take your temperature before you are allowed to embark the Transit Bus. If it is higher than 98.6 you will not be allowed to board the Transit Bus.  If your temperature is 98.6, or lower, you will be allowed to enter the bus and sit in one of the two designated seats.  Upon arrival at your destination, please remain seated until the driver exists the bus.  You may then exit the bus.  

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
