Tomorrow, March 24, MARTA is holding three public hearings – two in Atlanta and one in Decatur – to gather input on bus route changes as well as tenative plans to revive the Braves Shuttle. The shuttle, which usually runs from Five Points Station to Turner Field on Atlanta Braves game days, was axed during last fall’s service cuts. Bus routes affected by the proposed changes are:
- Route 2 – Ponce de Leon Avenue/Moreland Avenue
- Route 87 – Roswell Road/Morgan Falls
- Route 99 – Boulevard/Monroe Drive
- Route 181 – Buffington Road/South Fulton Park & Ride
Next week, on March 30, the Georgia Department of Transportation is holding a hearing for public input regarding the Multi-Modal Passenger Terminal (PDF) project that’s planned for the downtown “gulch” area. GDOT announced last week that it had selected a development team led by Cousins Properties to build the potentially transformative transit project, but proposal summaries from all three of the short-listed development teams are still on the GDOT site.

Still not enough civic engagement for you? The Atlanta Regional Commission is inviting metro Atlantans to an “online public meeting” to offer opinions on draft transportation recommendations for “Plan2040,” the agency’s plan to “accommodate economic and population growth sustainability over the next 30 years.” The online meeting is open until April 30.
