City of Rome

Rome Transit Department



On October 1, 1961, Rome established a department with the City of Rome to take over the bus operations from the Georgia Power Company. The Georgia Power Company gave the City or Rome all of its buses, plus any spare parts and equipment that they had on hand. Additionally, Georgia Power paid the City of Rome $300,000. The City of Rome agreed to use the money specifically for the transportation system. 

Today, the City of Rome Transit Department provides Public Transportation within the City limits of Rome, Georgia. The services that we provide are Fixed Route Services, which include Main Line and Para-Transit Services. We operate Monday through Friday, and we do not operate on the weekends.
