Liberty Transit, a public bus system in Hinesville, Flemington and Fort Stewart, officially expanded its routes into Walthourville Monday.
Its first stop in the city was at the intersection of Dunlevie and Talmadge roads.
In early September, the Hinesville City Council approved an intergovernmental agreement for the expansion, which includes routes on Airport, Talmadge and Dunlevie roads. The service expansion is on a 90 day pilot period.
Liberty Transit’s service area is approximately 263 square miles with an estimated population of 48,630 people. It is governed by the Transit Steering Committee, which is comprised of the mayors of Hinesville and Flemington, Liberty County Commission chairman and an ex-officio Fort Stewart representative. The agency operates nine buses.
