Looking at this map Armor Yards and Murphy Crossing arent needed.


I guess Armor Yards might be needed for the businesses in that immediate area.

Overall, this is great. It will really help transit access within the city. Something I'm disappointed about - there is no mention of the Capitol Ave/Zoo Atlanta streetcar line. Really wish that was in here. I also don't know how they chose the route for the Grant Park/Boulevard Heights circulator bus. I'd have through it would make more sense to also add Cherokee to the circulator, since there is no transit that goes straight up Cherokee to the King Memorial Station. I think that should be added, personally.

More for a transfer point to CC corridor and BeltLine transit. It could serve the industrial area of Armour Dr and maybe a pedestrian bridge to Brookwood Hills.

It seems like all the new infill stations are connected to the Beltline transit except for the Mechanicsville station I understand their thinking now

@cqholt

What do you think about this list? Which projects should they keep?

Mechanicsville, Boone, and Murphy's crossing infill stations, all BRT and ART lines, BeltLine LRT/Streetcars and station maintenance. Until DeKalb passes their sales tax increase the CC and I-20 should have the studies advanced to qualify for federal funding. Unless the I-20 West extension is going to FIB, it is pointless.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

Wow, wow, wow! This would all be so awesome!

-Speaking as a Vinings resident just outside city limits, a presumably park&ride "transit center" at Marietta Blvd @ Bolton/Moore's Mill, coupled with "frequent local bus service" would be amazing. Finally, some kind of decent transit in the northwest direction. Very much hope that happens.

-"Station rehabilitation" at Bankhead Station would be great, which I presume would mean platform lengthening so that Green Line can run full length trains, and perhaps adding park&ride to it, connecting it with the future Westside Reservoir Park, and probably renaming the station.

-Infills at Mechanicsville and Boone are a no-brainer, those look easy and should definitely happen, and be tied in with new TOD, ideally. And an Armour Station would be awesome as the connection to the Beltline transit from Red/Gold, and as finally a station in that huge gap between Arts Center and Lindbergh. The Adair Park Station at the south Beltline would be good, but I'd call that a 4th place. And the Blue Line extension west to a new station at I-285 would be great.

-Something BRT-ish on Peachtree, especially thru Buckhead, would be AWESOME. Perfect.

-Totally agree with what GeorgiaPeanuts said, they should looking into using buses that look like light rail vehicles, for these ART and BRT lines. Great idea.

-Only things I would add to the dream list inside the city limits, would be a Krog St infill, and a Hunter Hills infill on the Blue Line @ Chappell Rd. But that's about it that I can see.

How long would it take to get any of this off the ground?

Should be closer to I75 and the river as possible, perhaps BRT up Northside for the biggest impact on this corridor.
