Changes include reinstating the Bellevue express route, Ocmulgee express,
and west Macon routes.

MTA President Craig Ross, says these changes will allow families impacted from food deserts, have access to grocery stores.

“Bellevue is one of them. The way our Bellevue runs right now there’s no access to groceries right now. This will enable customers to at least go to Kroger,” he said.

Changes will go into effect Monday, February 3.
