The Augusta-Richmond County Commission / Council and the Department of Transportation began operating the Richmond County Transit System in September of 1989. The areas served by this transportation system are called non-urban by the Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT).
By teaming together, the federal, state, and county can jointly finance the operation of an on-urban program by implementing Section 5311 of the Federal Urban Mass Transportation Act (UMTA).
