VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta will soon be home to a high-tech transit system.  The first Transit Public Involvement Meeting will be held Wednesday.

City leaders want the public's input to gain a better understanding of Valdosta's transportation needs.  The bus system will be put into place next year. 

Mayor John Fretty explained his expectations by saying, "We hope it will be electronic enough that we will have a countdown and you'll know when your bud is arriving.  Each bus will have a little locator on it, and it will calculate it by logarithms every quarter of a mile."

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 7.  It will be held at the Valdosta City Hall Annex from 6 PM-8 PM.
