you think you’re so smarta

OK, MARTAholics. If you care enough to leave passionate comments on this blog about our favorite public-transit no-love-from-the-state basket case, then you care enough to attend one of the four public meetings being held this week: Decatur tonight, City Hall tomorrow, Roswell Road Wednesday and in College Park Thursday. Or at the very least, you care enough to send comments online directly to MARTA.

Unfortunately I don’t have the time right now to synthesize and respond to all the comments that came to this entry. One note I should make: there are now (I don’t know how long they’ve been there) simple screens in the Lenox, Arts Center, and Midtown stations (probably more; that’s just where I saw them this morning) that say NEXT 5-CAR TRAIN TO NORTH SPRINGS 6 MINUTES, or the like. To which I say: go, MARTA, go! The fanciest subway station in New York doesn’t have such easily accessible information. If the Powers That Be say that MARTA never does anything right, y’all MARTAficionados can point proudly to those screens.

    I was there on Monday evening at the Decatur meeting. If I don’t collapse first from having pulled off an all-nighter last night, I will most likely go to tonight’s meeting as well.
