I'd ride MARTA if it went out to Conyers. No point if I'm commuting from Conyers and it's out of the way. I do ride it occasionally when I just want to experience some kind of "big city" experience. I'll take MARTA from Indian Creek and go to the city, hang out, then head back on MARTA.

The New York subway seems just a bit more useful than Marta getting you where you want to go...

Well, it would make commuting from the suburbs into the city easier if it went farther out. There are also spots like Emory/North Druid Hills, Marietta, and Kennessaw that are big spots and not served at all....Also, Six flags...Imagine a train running near KSU. It would allow many KSU students to easily get to the city if they don't have a car.

Don't forget that a majority of city residents commute to work somewhere outside the city limits. So transit will have to take into account the large number of outbound commuters as well.

That's fine. I would hope the train goes back and forth.
