The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY -

Tak­ing ac­tion on Chero­kee Area Trans­porta­tion Sys­tem (CATS) mat­ters, the Chero­kee County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers ac­cepted the dona­tion of two shut­tle buses, added bus stops and ap­proved a new soft­ware con­tract.

The Ge­or­gia De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion Coastal Re­gional Com­mis­sion is do­nat­ing two, 2014, wheel­chair lift-equipped shut­tle vans it no longer needs.

This makes pos­si­ble “two part time driv­ers in place of the bud­geted full-time driver in or­der to fill ser­vice gaps in the cur­rent de­mand re­sponse route ... (and) will also re­duce wait times to cur­rent riders,” staff said.

Com­mis­sion­ers also added Can­ton fixed-route bus stops at the Wal-Mart store at Holly Springs to Route 200, and at the Chero­kee Pro­fes­sional Build­ing on Ga. 140 to Route 100. The Ma­ri­etta Road/Ed­wards Street and Cop­per­mine Manor stops will be moved to Route 100.

Fi­nally, com­mis­sion­ers named HB Soft­ware So­lu­tions to pro­vide “Q-Ryde” trans­porta­tion man­age­ment soft­ware at a hard­ware/soft­ware cost of $16,600 and an an­nual main­te­nance cost of $1,500 be­gin­ning in year two.
