Supply chain issues are taking a toll on transit in Cobb County

1 min read

Supply chain issues involving vehicle manufacturers and parts suppliers have left CobbLinc’s Paratransit system depleted.  

According to county officials, most of the fleet is past its useful life and parts can’t be found to fix those in the garage


To address the problem, CobbLince purchased 22 replacement vehicles that were due last December, but they have now been delayed another 18 to 24 months.

The county is renting 14 vehicles from contractor First Transit and has borrowed several vans from Cobb’s Senior Services to join the fleet

County officials say these temporary vehicles should be hitting the streets this week to help bring the Paratransit fleet back up to speed.
