And, having grown up in the Roswell/Alpharetta area, I am fairly confident that running a MARTA line up to Mansell Rd would actually please a lot of people.


The suburbs want nottttttthing to do with Atlanta. Did you not see TSPLOST get shut down with the quickness?

It's fairly well known that Atlanta wants to host the World Cup. It's a huge ploy for that. Maybe another Olympics as well, but definitely a World Cup.


cities don't host World Cups, countries do

I think Atlanta wants to be a host site for a world cup.
I wonder how much J-burg and Cape Town made in 2010

No shit, Sherlock.

I thought it was implied that by saying that Atlanta wants to host, I meant that Atlanta wants to be one of the most cities.

That would be sweet. I could walk to the Ted.

I did, but I don't think it's because they don't want what Marta brings. They just don't want to foot the bill (and given that TSPLOST wasn't looking at beginning construction on the 285/400 interchange until, like, 2020 or some crazy shit, I can see why none of the suburbanites would want to foot that bill).

I would love for marta to run to Cumberland. I always rode it when I lived in Brookhaven and now that I am in Smyrna it is a pain in the arse getting downtown.

You want infrastructure, you gotta pay for it.
