Link Forsyth is Forsyth County’s first ever public transportation master plan. The plan is led by the County’s Public Transportation Department and builds upon the two existing services:
Link Forsyth will ultimately guide the vision for and implementation of future public transportation investments in Forsyth County. The plan aims to understand the current state of the transportation services provided by the County and leverage public input and technical data to formalize recommendations that build on what is provided today while addressing the shared vision for public transportation services within the County.
The plan is funded in partnership with the ATL (Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority), the transit planning authority for the 13-county Atlanta metro region, and the recommendations from Link Forsyth are anticipated to be incorporated into the Atlanta Regional Transit Plan (ARTP) that is managed by the ATL under the State of Georgia’s regulations.

What are the steps to accomplish the plan?
Steps to accomplish the plan include:
The plan is anticipated to be completed by Summer of 2021.
