Just as public education serves as an engine for economic growth in Gwinnett County, so do traffic and transit have an impact on our families and staff who live and work in the county. This spring, Gwinnett County residents will go to the polls to vote on a contract for the provision of expanded transit services. (If the referendum passes, the county’s transit system and services would expand, funded through a one-cent sales tax for transit.) Interested residents can learn more about the transit contract during open house education sessions planned around the county. Find a summary of the major provisions of the contract and a Referendum Fact Sheet on Gwinnett County Government’s website. The Special Election on the transit contract referendum is scheduled for March 19, with opportunities for advanced and absentee voting for registered Gwinnett voters in the weeks leading up to Election Day.
