Service Changes Still Pending - Phase 2

Phase 2 recommendations include implementation of a Transportation Network Companies (TNC) Partnership Zone as well as recommended changes to Routes 25 and 30. Phase 2 implementation is still pending. Currently, the County is engaged in the procurement process to solicit transportation network companies to participate in a Partnership Zone. While the timeline for this process is not certain, the Cobb County DOT continues to advance the project.

To ensure transit coverage is maintained in Southwestern Cobb County, all recommendations in Phase 2 will be implemented together.

Transportation Network Companies (TNC) Partnership Zone

Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) are modern ride-hailing companies like Uber, Lyft, and taxicabs that provide on-demand rides using private vehicles.  The new TNC Partnership Zone would replace the three existing Flex Zones with a new privately operated, subsidized service.

The service area would expand to include the Riverside employment area, as well as more of South Cobb County.  Service would be offered between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on weekdays within a defined zone that includes Powder Springs, Austell, and South Cobb County.

Rides would be subsidized by CobbLinc, as long as the starting and ending point of a trip are within the subsidy zone. In order for this recommendation to be implemented, an agreement between CobbLinc and private operators will need to be in place. It is anticipated that fares would be not be more than Flex service.

Modifications to Routes 25 & 30

Route 25’s alignment would be modified to continue south on Austell Road to Thornton Road before continuing on to Six Flags and H.E. Holmes Station. The revised routing would serve two apartment complexes on Maxham Road, three on Thornton Road, and several more on Oak Ridge Road. Mableton Parkway, currently served by Route 25, will be served by restructured Route 30. Old Alabama Road and Hillcrest Drive will both lose service. These areas will instead be served by a new TNC Partnership Zone. The proposed changes to this route are dependent on the implementation of this new demand service in order to maintain riders’ access to the transit network. Sunday service would be added.

  • Frequency: 60 min
  • 5:00 AM–11:30 PM (M-F) / 7:00 AM–11:30 PM (Sat) / 7:00 AM–9:00 PM (Sun)

Route 30's alignment would be modified in Marietta to use Fairground instead of S Marietta Parkway and would be modified in South Cobb to no longer serve Riverside Parkway west of Factory Shoals Road. A restructured Route 25 would continue to serve all existing stops on Riverside Parkway. Route 30 would no longer serve Factory Shoals Road between Mableton Parkway and South Gordon Road and would no longer serve Blair Bridge Road. All existing Route 30 passengers would continue to have service, either on the restructured Route 25 or via the TNC Partnership service. Saturday Route 30 frequency would be improved from hourly service to 30-minute service. Sunday service would be added. 

  • Frequency: 15 min (weekday peak) / 30 min (weekday off-peak & Sat) / 60 min (Sun)
  • 4:30 AM–1:00 AM (M-F) / 5:30 AM–1:00 AM (Sat) / 6:00 AM–9:00 PM (Sun)

Service Changes Effective September 8, 2019

New Rapid10 (formerly 10x)

The new Rapid10 operates from Kennesaw to downtown Atlanta along Cobb Parkway and I-75, providing:

  • fast, direct service between the KSU-Kennesaw and KSU-Marietta campuses
  • limited stop service between the Cumberland and Marietta transfer centers

Rapid10 features new vehicles with free wifi, cloth seating, and USB charging connections.

This new route provides faster service with reduced travel times between Kennesaw, Marietta, Cumberland and downtown Atlanta as compared to Route 10 service.

  • Frequency: 15 min (peak weekday) / 30 min (off-peak weekday & Sat) / 60 min (Sun)
  • 5:30 AM–8:00 PM (M-F) / 6:30 AM–7:00 PM (Sat) / 7:00 AM–7:00 PM (Sun) 

Peak service hours are defined as 5:00 - 9:00 am and 3:30 - 6:30 pm.

Rapid10 Stops

  • KSU Kennesaw Campus
  • Busbee Park & Ride Lot
  • KSU Marietta Campus
  • Marietta Transfer Center
  • Cobb Parkway @ Windy Hill Road
  • Cobb Parkway @ Cumberland Parkway
  • Cumberland Transfer Center
  • Akers Mill Road @ Galleria Drive
  • 17th Street @ Market St
  • MARTA Arts Center Station

New Sunday Service (including Local Routes & Paratransit)

CobbLinc started Sunday service on September 8, 2019 for the first time in its 30-year service history!

Times for Sunday service vary by route. In general, Sunday service closely mirrors Saturday service with some routes starting an hour later and some ending 1 to 2 hours earlier.

Elimination of Routes 10A, 10B, and 10C

The Routes 10A, 10B, and 10C are eliminated from service.  Riders along these routes have the following commute alternatives available to them:

  • Route 10A riders could use the new Rapid10 or Route 10 to travel to the Cumberland Transfer Center and transfer to the Route 15 or Cumberland Circulator to access SunTrust Park or the Cumberland area previously served by this route
  • Route 10B riders could use the new Rapid10 or Route 10 to travel to the Cumberland Transfer Center and transfer to the Cumberland Circulator, Route 15, or Route 50 to access areas previously served by this route.
  • Route 10C riders could use the new Rapid10 to continue a one-seat ride between Midtown Atlanta, the Marietta Transfer Center, and Kennesaw.

Modifications to Route 10

Route 10's service is designed to overlap with the new Rapid10, so that there is a bus every 15 minutes or better between Cumberland Transfer Center and MARTA Arts Center on weekdays. Route 10’s frequency is reduced to 30 minutes all day and 60 minutes in the evenings.  Service will start earlier and end later during the week. No changes were made the Route 10’s current alignment. The schedule is updated.

  • Frequency: 30 min (all days) / 60 min (all late night)
  • 5:00 AM–1:00 AM (M-F) / 6:00 AM–1:00 AM (Sat) / 7:00 AM–12:00 AM (Sun)

Modifications to Route 15

Route 15's alignment is modified to no longer serve Wildwood Parkway and instead connect to SunTrust Park and Cumberland Transfer Center via Circle 75 Parkway, Windy Ridge Parkway, and Cumberland Parkway. Weekday midday frequency is upgraded to every 30 minutes. Hours of service are extended at night and on weekends. The schedule is updated.

  • Frequency: 30 min (weekday) / 60 min (weekday late night, Sat & Sun)
  • 5:00 AM–11:00 PM (M-F) / 7:00 AM–9:00 PM (Sat) / 7:00 AM–8:00 PM (Sun)

New and eliminated stops will be bagged two weeks prior to starting the new service.

Modifications to Route 40

Route 40's alignment is modified to provide more direct service to downtown Marietta, WellStar, Town Center, and KSU. This route will travel through downtown Marietta via Church Street and Cherokee Street, rather than Route 45, to better connect to the amenities along Bells Ferry Road and in Kennesaw. Segments along S Marietta and North Marietta Parkway will be eliminated. The route’s northern segment is straightened to eliminate travel through low-ridership residential areas. The bus will continue on Townpark Lane, across the Skip Spann Connector, to access KSU. Segments along George Busbee Parkway, Townpark Drive, and Frey Lake Road will be eliminated. Service hours are extended. The schedule is updated.

  • Frequency: 60 min
  • 6:00 AM–12:00 AM (M-F) / 6:00 AM–10:00 PM (Sat) / 7:00 AM–8:00 PM (Sun)

Modifications to Route 45

Route 45’s alignment is modified to provide more direct service from the Marietta Transfer Center to serve Cobb Parkway, Barrett Crossing, Town Center, and KSU. The northern portion of the route is streamlined to reduce travel distance and eliminate low ridership segments in Kennesaw. The route will operate via George Busbee Parkway and Busbee Drive between Town Center and KSU. Service on Frey Road, Chastain Meadows Parkway, and North Marietta Parkway will be eliminated. The route will overlap with Route 40 to provide consistent 30-minute service between Town Center and KSU. Route 45’s path through downtown Marietta will be moved to the Route 40, providing Route 45 riders with a more direct connection between Cobb Parkway and Marietta Transfer Center. Later evening and earlier morning service will also be provided on weekdays. The schedule is updated.

  • Frequency: 60 min
  • 5:30 AM–10:30 PM (M-F) / 7:30 AM–10:30 PM (Sat) / 8:30 AM–8:30 PM (Sun)

Modifications to Route 50

Route 50’s alignment is shortened in Marietta to no longer provide service on Cobb Parkway and Fairground Street. The realigned Route 45 will serve existing Route 50 ridership north of Roswell Road. In Cumberland, the route continues straight on Akers Mill Road instead of looping around on Cobb Galleria Parkway and Cumberland Boulevard. The shorter Route 50 alignment will reduce travel times between Marietta and Cumberland, as well as improve the route’s on-time performance. To meet the needs of Tip Top Poultry employees off North Marietta Parkway, two outbound trips from the Marietta Transfer Center in the morning will deviate to the factory. In the afternoon, two return trips will run from Tip Top to Marietta Transfer Center. Route 50 will provide 30-minute weekday service between Marietta and Cumberland. Service is extended later in the evening on Saturdays. The schedule is updated.

  • Frequency: 30 min (weekdays) / 60 min (week late night, Sat & Sun)
  • 5:00 AM–12:00 AM (M-F) / 7:00 AM–11:00 PM (Sat) / 7:00 AM–8:00 PM (Sun)

New and eliminated stops will be bagged two weeks prior to starting the new service.

Modifications to Express Routes

All route schedules have been updated. 

**New route brochures will be posted as soon as available!***

Due to public comment received from Route 100 and Route 101 passengers, no changes will occur to the Downtown Atlanta circulation loop at this time.

Route 100 will maintain its Downtown Atlanta alignment and continue to serve MARTA Five Points Station. The alignment is slightly modified in Kennesaw to gain access to the managed lanes on I-75 in the peak direction. The schedule is updated. Frequency and span will remain the same.

  • 5:25 AM - 8:45 AM / 3:15 PM - 7:32 PM (M-F)

Route 101 will maintain its Downtown Atlanta alignment and continue to serve MARTA Five Points Station. The alignment is slightly modified in Marietta to gain access to the managed lanes on I-75 in the peak direction. The schedule is updated. Frequency and span will remain the same. 

  • 6:10 AM–8:52 AM / 3:53 PM–7:33 PM (M-F)

Route 102’s movement through Midtown Atlanta is modified. Rather than circulating through Atlanta, Route 102 will serve Arts Center Station, facilitating an easy connection to MARTA. Trips to Arts Center will use the Northside Drive HOV exit and continue to 17th Street NW, which will also provide access to Atlantic Station. Additionally, Route 102 will utilize the managed lanes on I-75 in the peak direction to avoid congestion and reduce travel times. One trip (7:30 AM) with regularly low ridership is eliminated in the morning and added to the schedule in the afternoon (3:00 PM). The schedule is updated. 

  • 5:30 AM–9:00 AM / 3:00 PM–7:05 PM (M-F)

Picture of cover for CobbLinc 2019 Service Recommendations Report
CobbLinc Forward Service Recommendations

CobbLinc Forward is a package of service recommendations for enhancing CobbLinc’s fixed-route service. Recommendations were developed using public input, market conditions, and existing ridership patterns. Click to download a copy of the CobbLinc Forward Service Recommendations. This document provides a summary of the service recommendations.

The Process for Change

In late 2017, Cobb County began a comprehensive, detailed review of the structure and delivery of its transit service for the first time in CobbLinc’s 30-year operating history.  

This effort, known as the CobbLinc Transit Service Plan, analyzed existing travel patterns, demographics, and socioeconomic data to understand the underlying transit market. The Plan examined the ridership and on-time performance of every trip and every CobbLinc route. The Plan process also engaged hundreds of Cobb County residents and employees to define unmet transit needs and desired improvements.

The information and input gathered during these efforts was then used to develop service scenarios and, ultimately, a list of fiscally constrained recommendations to improve system reliability and on-time performance.

We will begin implementing the list of new service recommendations, known as CobbLinc Forward, in two phases.

Phase 1 implementation will begin on September 8, 2019 and will include the addition of Sunday bus service, a new Route Rapid10, modifications to portions of local routes, and the elimination of Routes 10A, 10B, and 10C.

Phase 2 recommendations include implementation of a Transportation Network Companies (TNC) Partnership Zone as well as recommended changes to Routes 25 and 30.  To ensure transit coverage is maintained in Southwestern Cobb County, all recommendations in Phase 2 will be implemented together.

Phase 2 implementation is still pending approval by the Cobb County Board of Commissioners. Currently, the County is formulating the "Request for Proposals" (RFP) for private transportation network companies to participate in a Partnership Zone. This RFP will go before the Board when complete along with the request to implement Phase 2 recommendations.
