Atlanta Regional Commission calls for major transit expansion with ‘long-range’ vision

Curbed Atlanta

Gwinnett County voters are on the cusp of approving or denying massively consequential legislation that could lead to the introduction (or not) of Atlanta’s MARTA system in the northeastern suburbs.

In March, Gwinnettians will elect to adopt or shoot down the idea of linking the MARTA transit agency with the region’s most populous suburban county.

But that vote isn’t the only effort to grow metro Atlanta’s transit network in a way that could join other OTP communities with the city proper—and bolster transit within the city itself.
