Liberty Transit asking for public input for future plans
Hinesville Logo

The City of Hinesville is asking the public for input on the Transit Development Plan for Liberty Transit. The updated plan is available at LibertyTransit org until May 31 for public comment before changes go into effect for the transit system.

Liberty Transit is a public transit system operating in Hinesville, Flemington, Walthourville and Fort Stewart. This fixed-route service has been operating since 2010 to serve residents needing access to transportation. In 2023, Liberty Transit officials began reviewing existing operations and completed a community survey to gain insight into ways to improve transit in Liberty County.

“To receive federal and state funding, transit agencies must evaluate their Transit Development Plans (TDP) every five years,” said Donna Dale, transit manager of the City of Hinesville. “Our team gathered public input and most respondents rated regional connections to neighboring counties, expanded service throughout Liberty County, improved technology and safety as critical needs for our local transit system.”

Using that feedback, Liberty Transit is considering service improvement options such as expanded service hours, micro- transit in Walthourville and Fort Stewart, employment shuttles to Midway and Riceboro, a transit center, technology upgrades and more. Liberty Transit officials are asking Liberty County residents to provide feedback, so the transportation needs of all residents are known.

Visit www.libertytransit. org to view the plan online and provide feedback using the online form. You can also provide feedback in person at Hinesville City Hall, Hinesville Public Library, Flemington City Hall or Walthourville City Hall. Visit these four locations to view a printed copy of the plan and provide feedback using the comment card provided. Everyone who submits feedback via the online form or printed comment cards will be entered for a chance to win $50.

Once feedback is received, the City of Hinesville will finalize and vote on the new Liberty Transit plan on June 20 at 3 p.m. at Hinesville City Hall.
