Transportation Alliance: Website
The TransFormation Alliance is a broad partnership of organizations from the private, public and nonprofit sectors dedicated to creating thriving, mixed-income communities anchored by transit and linked to all the opportunities and amenities that make Atlanta great. Our mission is to offer all residents the opportunities for a high quality of life, linked by our region’s critically important transit system.
Marta Army: Website
The MARTA Army is an independent grassroots action group, committed to enhancing the ridership experience on public transit here in Metro Atlanta. The Army engages citizens across the region to reclaim ownership over the MARTA network by making it more accessible and convenient in their own neighborhoods.
The MARTA Army’s first initiative is an adopt-a-stop program. We provide weather-resistant signs with route and schedule information for soldiers to put up at their adopted bus stops. Since September 26th, more than 300 soldiers have adopted bus stops all over Metro Atlanta, which have become gateways into the transit system.
Council for Quality Growth: Website
On November 8, 2016 voters in Fulton County will consider a 5-year Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax for Transportation Purposes (TSPLOST), and City of Atlanta Voters will consider a 5 year TSPLOST and a MARTA transit sales tax. These referenda were made possible through SB369 adopted during the 2016 legislative session of the General Assembly. Download a printable version HERE.
