The Alachua County Commission is pleased to announce that a new bus route has been added to serve the County’s unincorporated area in cooperation with the City of Gainesville's Regional Transit System—the new Route 52 runs from Jonesville to the University of Florida Health Center. The bus route will run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and has four stops in Jonesville. During typical commuter times, the bus will run every 60 minutes.
This is the first new route planned by the County to encourage transit-supportive development in Alachua County and will initially be paid for by Multi-modal Transportation Mitigation fees collected from new development.
"It is important to have strong transportation networks within the City of Gainesville and in the urbanized unincorporated area,” commented Alachua County Transportation Planning Manager Chris Dawson. He continued, “This new route will encourage bus ridership as the Jonesville area grows. It will provide accessibility to jobs, services, and healthcare.”
