  • Jefferson Transit goes to Augusta Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday if we have at least two (2) riders with appointments. All appointments must be made before 1 p.m. and the bus will leave Augusta by 3 p.m. Jefferson Transit will call all riders the afternoon before to inform them what time to be ready and that depends when the first appointment is.
