You only mentioned the park, not PDC (which is actually about 0.6 miles from Arts Center).

It's a pleasant, shaded walk thru one of Atlanta's historic neighborhoods. The walk along 14th is shorter: https://goo.gl/maps/d2xw6NWTxms

Google maps says it is 0.9. I used PDC because it was something google maps would recognize and it IS at the edge of the park closest to the Arts Center station, which is at the back of the museum.

Very nice map!

Continuing that pink line over to Moore's Mill TC, would make that map/coverage so much more complete. W/ connection to the Northside rapid busway, via a LRT station at Northside Dr.

Great map. I heard the Summerhill BRT isn't happening though, I think cq mentioned it on another site. Any insights into this? Given that it's already funded, I can't imagine it's COMPLETELY off the table, but maybe will take a different route? Disappointing from my perspective, that would have been a really great addition to our transit system - there is no quick and easy way to get from the SE side of the city to downtown/midtown right now without having to transfer to rail after taking a really low-frequency bus.

I hope it remains, and is built as proper BRT, if for no other reason than that it would be a good start to the Buckhead to Lakewood Hashtag BRT line that the city has proposed:

Good discussion of possible reasons Europeans have more robust transit systems. Suggests more frequent bus and better use of freight rail lines.

Converting existing rail lines to run real transit service can be shockingly cheap
Hmm, sounds like the BeltLine.

Europeans also pay more taxes to support such things, and the American theme is "taxes are theft" and to try to avoid them as much as possible. Americans want things, but don't think they should have to pay for them.
