Connecting KSU to SunTrust Park, Downtown Atlanta
A new express bus route will provide service from Kennesaw State University to SunTrust Park and schools in downtown Atlanta and Marietta. The route is targeted to university students, faculty and staff, but will be open to the public.
CobbLinc Route 10X has a target start date of Spring 2018. The route includes stops at Kennesaw State University, SunTrust Park, Life University, KSU’s Marietta campus, Georgia State University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Savannah School of Art and Design.
Route 10X will provide express service by limiting stops and will relieve crowded CobbLinc Route 10. That route has the highest ridership in the CobbLinc system and is one the highest ridership routes in the Southeast, according to Cobb transportation officials.
The new express route is the result of a transit study conducted by KSU and the Cobb County Department of Transportation to improve options for students and staff of Kennesaw State and Life universities.
The new route addresses the need for reliable transportation alternatives in the U.S. Highway 41/Interstate 75 corridors in Cobb County and in Midtown and downtown Atlanta, Cobb officials said.
