CCT Success Story

2 posts in this topic

Metro Atlanta's transit success story. Can MARTA learn something from this? I think this shows that a well run system can draw the crowds to support the upcoming BRT/LRT line to Cobb county.

So what's the big difference: I think Cobb's system has done a better job of adapting. Not only adjusting and adapting to their riders needs, but being able to address aging equipment and underused routes. Now all they need is rail...



Cobb Community Transit is a success story

Cobb will likely not fund their own LRT line, the state will provide the funding for that. Several Cobb/Cherokee cities however are fronting up money to plan a commuter rail line between Cherokee county and Cobb to link up with light rail or future commuter rail.

As for transit agencies, there are currently 4: MARTA, Gwinnett County (small bus agency), Cobb (pretty large bus agency), Clayton (very small bus agency).

Yes, much of Cobb county and Fulton County (where Atlanta is) is divided by the Chattahoochee river.
