Should MARTA Expand Rail, Rapid Bus Service Up GA 400?
Another Georgia 400 Corridor Transit Initiative will be held this week, so what would you like to see come out of it?
Metro-Atlanta's transportation system is a polarizing topic for some who live north of the perimeter; which begs the question: should MARTA expand its high-capacity transit services along the GA 400 corridor?
High-capacity transit could mean anything from rapid transit bus service to light rail or heavy rail options. The type of transit being considered within the Georgia 400 Corridor Transit Initiative would most likely have fewer stops, travel at a higher speed and have more frequent service than the current bus schedules into the areas of downtown Atlanta, Cobb and Gwinnett.
According to the initiative fact sheet, whatever comes out of the study would provide "another option to help alleviate the burden on existing roadways and enable the potential for areas of focused redevelopment."
