Walker County Government will expand transit operations later this month to include additional weekday hours and Saturday service.
Beginning May 14, Walker Transit will offer trips on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. “We look forward to this new growth and the opportunity it brings to serve the transportation needs of the citizens of Walker County,” said John Logan, Transit Director.
Along with the new Saturday service, Walker Transit will offer extended weekday hours. Beginning May 16, transit will run from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The expanded services are designed to make it more convenient for riders who need additional times to get to and from work, medical and personal care visits or for shopping.
“The Walker Transit team has been working diligently to hire and train new drivers to accommodate this expansion of service,” added Logan. Several transit positions remain available. Those interested in driving full or part-time can apply online at walkercountyga.gov/jobs.
Reservations to ride Walker Transit can be made by calling (706) 375-0803. Reservations must be made at least one day prior to a trip and before 12:00 p.m. on Thursdays for Saturday service.
