Liberty Transit is considering changing its bus system in and around Hinesville and asking for the public's opinion on how it could be changed.
Hinesville officials and the Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission are accepting public comment on proposed changes to existing bus routes through Aug. 8. Information on possible changes is available at the Liberty Transit station, Hinesville City Hall, Flemington City Hall, the Liberty County branch Library on Memorial Drive and the Planning Commission office at 205 E. Court St. in Hinesville. For information or to submit comments online, go to www.libertytransit.org and click on the "news" tab. There is also information at the city's web site, www.cityofhinesville.org. You can also call Rachel Hatcher of Debra Attical at LCPC, 408-2030.
A public hearing on the system will be from 4-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3, at the Liberty County Courthouse Annex. The Hinesville City Council will have a workshop on proposed route changes at 2 p.m. Thursday in the municipal courtroom.
The system, which began operating in October, runs three bus routes through Hinesville, Flemington and Fort Stewart.
