A line from Chattanooga- Rome- Atlanta-Griffin-Macon- Warner Robins is one that is needed along with Augusta-Athens-Lawrenceville-Atlanta- Newnan-Lagrange- Columbus. Atlanta being the hub.

Looks like GDOT got a new website! It's hard as hell to find now, but they've got this posted for passenger rail:

The Georgia Rail Passenger Program (GRPP) consists of a comprehensive plan for two distinct kinds of rail transportation: commuter and intercity trains. Commuter trains would serve inbound commuters going to work in the metro Atlanta area in the morning and then traveling home in the evening. Intercity trains would connect communities throughout Georgia and the Southeast.

The GRPP contains seven commuter rail lines, seven lines of intercity rail service as well as the Multi-Modal Passenger Terminal (MMPT).

Intercity Rail
Intercity Passenger Rail Service in Georgia is provided by the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, known commonly as “AMTRAK.”

Proposed Intercity Passenger Rail Service
A two-tiered intercity passenger rail network has been proposed for Georgia:

First Priority Corridors
Atlanta to Macon via Lovejoy and Griffin
Savannah to Jacksonville via Vidalia
Macon to Savannah via Vidalia or via Jesup
Macon to Albany via Americus

Second Priority Corridors
Atlanta to Augusta via Madison
Atlanta to Columbus via Griffin
Atlanta to Greenville via Gainesville and Toccoa

Commuter Rail
Georgia's seven commuter lines serve 55 communities. Once the 425-mile system is complete, commuter trains will transport over 40,000 people to and from work everyday. Intercity trains will run on over a thousand miles of Georgia's railroads, connecting communities all over the state.

Overall nothing new. It's nice to see them talking (if only there) as if this is still something soon to come.
