THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) –Thomas County officials say their transit system is run so well, it's the only self-sustaining system statewide.

A private consultant told county commissioners Tuesday that the Thomas County Area Transit System, or T-Cats, had an $8,000 surplus in revenue last year.

It's the second year in the row in the T-Cats short six-year history that has happened.

"It's a big accomplishment for the county and the people of Thomas County not to have any local tax money to be put in the transit system. It's self-supporting," says Donnie Baggett, Thomas County's Transit Director.

Transit officials say all that surplus money is put back into the Thomas County's transit budget. They plan to begin offering fixed routes sometime next year.

For now, people must set up a T-Cats ride one day in advance.
