Beginning today, Monday, Sept. 24, the city of Gainesville and Brenau have partnered to start running the Main Street Shuttle as an answer to the parking limitations around the Brenau Downtown Center and the city square.
More than 1,000 public parking spaces have been identified in and around downtown Gainesville, and the free shuttle will make stops at specific locations every 15 minutes. Click here to view the map (PDF) of the parking lots and shuttle stops. All the locations are clearly marked with “Downtown Shuttle” signage.
The shuttle will run from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. The city anticipates that shuttle passengers will be more heavily concentrated in the city employee lots from 7 to 7:45 a.m., so those stops will be frequented more often until the Brenau students start to arrive at the other stops.
There will be a learning curve in this new service, but we are pleased to be able to offer a solution during the construction on the Main Street parking deck.
