MARTA

This week on The Local Take I talk with community experts about Rides To Wellness, a program that began with a grant from the Federal Transportation Administration to help strengthen the Affordable Care Act. My guests are Ben Limmer, Assistant General Manager for MARTA, Amanda Tyner, Rides To Wellness Coordinator with the Atlanta Regional Commission, and Sherard Polite, health educator at the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority.

 

The Local Take Talks Transportation for DeKalb County

Dec 19, 2017

I recently spoke with Curtis Parker about his editorial in Crossroads News regarding the expansion of MARTA into South DeKalb. 

MARTA has a plan to expand east along the I-20 corridor. This plan was made almost 20 years ago and while it was great at that time, times change.  

Mr. Parker's editorial spoke about using light rail as opposed to hard rail lines. He mentions that most metropolis are relying on light rail.  He provides examples of light rail from the Plane train at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to the downtown street car.
