Born 2 Roll would come, eager to engage in intricate, detailed, and verbose discussions on Atlanta/Georgia politics, transit, and commuting patterns.

There'd be one guy who would show up just to rile up the attendees on some controversial topic, like religious freedom.

Finally, someone would walk by looking for help finding a house. lastminutemom wouldn't be partaking in the Cobb/MARTA/transit/politics discussion, instead looking to help those wondering what the best school districts are, where to move their families, and so on.

Maybe arjay would show up wearing a shirt simply saying, "Elbow Room!"

Haha this is near perfect. Reminds me of the "if the internet was a real place" Chappelle show skit.

I believe it might work out better if we separated ourselves by BRT supporters, light rail supporters, HRT supporters, and a row of naysayers.

Meet at the Tilted Kilt in Cumberland. Just down (up?) Akers Mill from the MARTA/CCT bus exchange so ITPers could hitch a ride. And I could walk there from work. Heheh.

It would have to be accessible to MARTA rail, have a sidewalk, bike lanes, freeway access, etc. Just so we could appease everyone.

MARTA bus isn't good enough?

You could bring a piece of Lionel track with you and place it on the bus seat.

That's not a bad idea. Just looked at the area and there seems to be plenty of places to eat. I also see Marta around the corner. Wow! I am so amazed how good they've gotten with integrating MARTA in google maps. I was also surprised to see that the 12 bus still goes to Cumberland. I know a few years ago there was massive change with the bus system and so couldn't assume.

I used to be a MARTA user through and through and to find a bus that goes all the way from the train station to Cumberland, was a huge positive. There is nothing worse than having to transfer buses, especially when you are not familiar with an area.

The walk wouldn't even be that much. If that walk is too much, then those MARTA users aren't true public transport users because I remember having to walk A LOT. They must be heavily dependent on friends/family, or Uber.
