Now we just need fourthwarden to design a frequent service map in the style of the current MARTA rail map, showing HRT, LRT, BRT, and ART lines of this proposal.

Emory University President Claire Sterk, in an optimistic statement sent to Curbed, said she was “encouraged by MARTA’s announcement today and [looks] forward to the vote on October 4.”

When will this be complete? Particularly, around when will light rail along the Beltline trails and the streetcar from the AUC to the eastside trail be complete? 3 years? 5 years? 10 years?

From your description it sounds like Campbellton has much to support its inclusion. High ridership routes are where you should look first. But they don't just do it without study.

So we’re saying over ten years or so? I’m fine with waiting. I’m just trying to get a rough idea of how long; 5 years to 15 years is a pretty broad range.

At least 5 years for higher price tag transit lines.

I thought MARTA didn't release ridership stats. Do you have an inside track? I've always wanted to see data for all the lines. It would be fascinating to comb through.

I don't know why they don't release bus ridership figures.

It's a public agency. They have to release the information.

They used to post the top 10-20 routes a few years ago on their website but they stopped posting them.
