A small-scale, privately run mass transit system is up and running in Clayton County.
The county discontinued its C-Tran bus service earlier this year because of financial constraints, leaving many commuters looking for ways to get to work or school.
A local investor, Tywanna Albro, acquired five buses and six vans and has begun operating them on a couple of C-Tran routes.
She calls the new service QuickTransit.
Deborah Flannagan, executive director of the Georgia Public Service Commission, says QuickTransit was issued an emergency certificate to operate on July 26.
She says the lack of public transportation since the March 31 shutdown of C-TRAN influenced the decision to approve the service.
Flannagan says QuickTransit will be evaluated later for a possible permanent certificate.
