Even 3rd world countries have public transportation, this is the US and your state cannot even provide public transportation to its people? How do you people even function in such a place? There are many options to transport to get to places, walking, bus, subway, bicycle, train, etc... This place only offers 1 choice, you guys are limited to a car, van, etc... It's like a wheelchair-- once it breaks down, you cannot get around. In these 3rd world countries you can drive, take pubilc transportation, whatever you choose. *** Here, they don't even have sidewalks. ***

OK--you are from NY and there are trains that run from CT to NYC daily but that isn't the case here. MARTA, public transportation, trains and buses, operates intown--including the closer suburban areas. 5/6 counties are included in the metro ATL area and several, including Cobb County where Marietta is located, chose not to allow MARTA in their communities. Some now regret this. FWIW.

Rome is located in North GA, approximately 1 hr away. Possibly there are few people who commute daily from Rome to Marietta that wish to travel by bus.

So we should have buses that travel from every possible starting point to every possible destination, just to serve the needs of visitors from NY? If there was enough of a desire for people to go from Rome to Marietta, there would be a bus, but since there's no demand, there's no service.

Check with Delta Air Lines. They're ready when you are. That is to leave the state and quit bashing it.

Ain't that the truth. I myself have been to many "Third World Countries" not only do they do NOT have public transportation they barely have transportation at all, unless you count bike, donkey, camel, and or horse.

Also, Rome is not a large city or even a large town for that matter.

Since we are in a NY sprit. Let me ask:

I'm visiting New York from Georgia, how can I get to Buffalo from Ticonderoga? Which bus am I suppose to take, am I suppose to get a transfer somewhere?

Why didn't you basic research on the places you were visiting before arriving here?

Most areas in the US outside of major metro areas don't have bus service unless you count Greyhound, and I have no idea how extensive their network is these says, either.
