Athens Public Transit

Residents are asked to voice their opinions about transportation needs in Athens County, and if they would support a sales tax hike to fund increased transit services.

What do residents think about a possible sales tax increase to fund more transportation in Athens County?

A series of community forums are being planned this month to determine that answer.

There are two meetings planned for each date and location:

  • Thursday, June 13, 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. — Coolville United Methodist Church (26460 Main St., Coolville)
  • Monday, June 17, 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. — Athens Public Library (30 Home St., Athens)
  • Tuesday, June 18, 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. — Stuart’s Opera House (52 Public Square, Nelsonville)
  • Wednesday, June 19, 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. — Amesville Village Productions (16 State St., Amesville)

Those who seek transportation to these events or require special accommodations are asked to contact Athens County Mobility Manager Jessie Schmitzer at 740-594-8499 or email
