March 8 Community Meeting Offers Opportunity to Learn about the City of Franklin’s Public Transit Service

February 28th, 2012

Franklin, TN – With gas prices rising, on Thursday evening, March 8, the Franklin Transit Authority will host a community meeting to provide information about Franklin’s public transit services which offer a transportation alternative to high gas prices. The meeting at the Williamson County Public Library begins at 5:30 and concludes by 6:30 pm. The library is located at 1314 Columbia Avenue in Franklin.

“Timing for the meeting could not be better,” said Debbie Henry, Executive Director of the Franklin Transit Authority. “Gas prices are increasing every day, sometimes twice a day. You can travel all over Franklin for $1.00 on board Franklin Transit’s fixed routes. The fare is only 50 cents for seniors and children.”

She noted that in addition to its extensive scheduled routes throughout Franklin, Franklin Transit Authority also offers Transit on Demand (TODD) services. TODD provides pre-arranged curb-to-curb pick-up and drop-off services. Costs for this popular service vary depending on the distance traveled.

All Franklin Transit vehicles are ADA accessible. Franklin Transit vehicles operate Monday through Saturday from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The March 8 meeting will be an opportunity to learn about all the services offered by Franklin Transit, pick up a new transit schedule, and meet Franklin Transit staff who can answer any questions.

“The library is a community learning center. It is a great place to have a meeting where you can learn about a great community resource – Franklin Transit,” said Henry. She noted that the library is also one of the stops for Franklin Transit.
