Regarding the comment, "It would be pathetic if that happened. This city needs better transportation more than almost anywhere else in the country. We have far too much "green space" in this city, and little to no connectivity between neighborhoods. " Actually Atlanta ranks very low in regards to park space in relation to other cities of it size - http://www.atlantagreenspace.com/docs/Gree…
And while I would love to see them get the paths built ASAP so I can start using them as alternates to streets on my bike commute, I will have to agree that a small segment of the rail transit aspect needs to be built. If anything as a testing ground for the future of the project. And no, buses should not be the "quick fix." Build a light rail segment, even if only for 1-2 miles so people can see what it is all about.
