The mission of the Liberty Transit System is to enhance the quality of life for residents, visitors, soldiers and families by providing safe, environmentally friendly and cost effective transportation options.
Serving Liberty County
Liberty transit is a fixed route public transit systems that operates within the City of Hinesville, City of Flemington, City of Walthourville, and Fort Stewart Military Installation, home of the 3rd Infantry Division. The service area is approximately 263 square miles with an estimated population of 48,630 person (according to the 2000 Census count). The Liberty Transit System is governed by the Transit Steering Committee which is comprised of the Mayor of Hinesville, Mayor of Flemington, Liberty County Board of Commissioners Chairman, Mayor of Walthourville, and an ex-officio Fort Stewart representative. The agency operates a fleet of 9 buses each equipped with ADA complaint wheelchair lifts and tie downs as well as bicycle racks for multimodal passengers.
While Liberty Transit will begin as a fixed route transit system, the long term goal is to become a countywide system and ultimately part of a regional solution to transportation needs. In order to accomplish these long term goals, the staff at Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission is working across the region with transit partners to develop a plan to make these goals a reality.
