Clayton County Transit System Shutdown

Commuters who relied on Clayton County's C-Tran bus system are trying to find other ways to get around. The system that served the county south of Atlanta ceased operations Wednesday night. The last bus left Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport just before midnight. The county shut down the system to save money.

Commission Chairman Eldrin Bell, who tried to keep the system going, says a sales tax referendum is the best hope to restore public transit in the county.

C-Tran had about 8,000 daily riders. Churches and community groups are trying to arrange ride pools to help fill the gap.
