Silver will discontinue service to Macon effective November 5, 2014
Macon is a city that lies close to the geographic center of Georgia. Macon was developed at the site of a fort dating from the early 1800s and recent excavations have revealed the importance of the early fort and settlement. The city thrived primarily due to its location on the Ocmulgee River, which enabled shipping to markets; cotton became the mainstay of Macon's early economy. In the twentieth century, Macon grew into a prospering town and began to serve as a transportation hub for the entire state.
