THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) –Thomas County Area Transit Service plans to provides a new fixed-route bus service.

But first, they need the public's input on where the route should go.

The T-CATS system currently provides public service by request only with a 24-hour notice.

Since the service began in 2006, customers have consistently requested fixed-route service.

Public workshops will gauge needs and feasibility for fixed routes.

"The public needs to come out and tell us what they need and how we can better suite their transportation," explains Donnie Baggett, Director of Thomas County Area Transit. "The small communities need transportation and the economy is not as good as it needs to be. People are looking for ways to be more efficient. And public transportation is one of the ways."

Full Thomas County Area Transit Public Workshop Schedule:

• Tuesday, Oct. 26, 6 p.m., Coolidge Fire Station, Enon Road

• Thursday, Oct. 28, 6 p.m., Emergency Services Center, 1202 Remington Ave.
