Please help to put pressure our leaders in metro Atlanta to build a mass transit system that serves the entire Atlanta metro region. Atlanta is a metropolitan area full of transplants like myself who have lived in an area that has a reliable mass transit systems. We would like to see the same here. This would include expanding the current Marta Rail system that could be built parallel to the major interstates routes such as I75 - I85 and if possible create a suburban commuter rail system to help get people out of their cars. Transit buses from suburban neighborhoods would feed into the rail stations which would help relieve some of the gridlock that continues plaque the region! The past traffic congestion during our recent storm is a prefect example why this region needs to have a proper transit system. This has to be an Atlanta metro issue and not one that requires the entire state to participate in. If we one to be compared to the great cities such as Washington,DC, Chicago, San Fran and New York we have to get get on their level when it comes to moving its residence throughout the region. This would encourage major corporations to want to establish offices throughout the metro region to come here which would create more jobs. Downtown, Midtown, Highland Ave, Inman Park would develop more life by opening nice cafe, retail shops and restaurants that you could just walk up and down too. Currently, this city doesn't have a main street where can just ride a train, get off to walk up and down. It seems every place you go to you have to be dependent on a car. Its time that we speak up! We need to let our voice be heard and this is the first staring point. Please join me in my effort to make a difference!
