As a Clayton/Henry County resident since 1999, I would LOVE to see the MARTA rails extend all the way down through Clayton County. My wife and I share one car and there are so many moments where we wish we didn't even need a car at all! The loss of CTRAN was a devastation for Clayton County. With such a rapidly growing population here, it's only completely logical to invest in something such as MARTA. Whatever it would cost to build and run this line would certainly be paid back by the amount of good use it would be put to. Am I making sense here?

I agree totally.. I think the person that said "we dont need it" was basically implying that it would bring in "unwanted" people. But the fact of the matter is, the demographic of Clay Co has already changed and that ship has sailed. With the way that county is growing, the fact that there is no public transportation is a joke.

If they do it PLEASE DONT BUILD THESE MASSIVE PARK AND RIDES. They need to build smaller scale stations to try to promote Transit Oriented Developments.

I am not saying that the stations should not have parking, just not massive decks and highway fly-ins like North Springs.

And they should be walkable too.
